Since 1979, FPTR has awarded more than $22.5 million in research funding to the most promising physical therapist researchers. Even more remarkable than this major investment in research is the return. Our researchers have built on their early career funding to secure an additional $896 million in follow-on funding from major agencies including the NIH, the Department of Defense, the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development, among others. In this FPTR webinar, successful leaders in research will discuss awards from the foundation that have propelled their careers forward. A member of FPTR’s Scientific Review Committee will also speak about the 11 new grants available along with highlight new items in the review process.
