The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation is proud to support healthcare professionals and students dedicated to accelerating trauma research and recovery. Three funding streams are available:
- The Stepping Strong Explorer Program funds healthcare professionals and students seeking to develop their knowledge, networks, and understanding of traumatic injury, to promote interest in the field, and to build community.
- The Stepping Strong Innovator Awards fund research and innovation to prevent traumatic injury before it occurs, to improve the treatment and care of traumatic injury when it does occur, and to ensure its associated recovery. The Stepping Strong Center funds high-reward projects by the best, most creative and collaborative physicians, bioengineers, and bench researchers working on these trauma-related topics. Preference in the application process will be given to multidisciplinary, multi-institutional projects with teams of collaborators with at least one member at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (the Brigham) or Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH).
- The Stepping Strong Breakthrough Awards supports previously funded Stepping Strong Innovator Award recipients who have demonstrated scientific efficacy and have published papers in peer-reviewed journals.
