The International Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy Research Foundation is registered as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization in the United States, operating on a worldwide basis under the governance of a Board of Directors. Each calendar year we accept applications for funding until June 1.
Our foundation is seeking grant applications to further research into the usefulness and limitations of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT). Consideration will be given to proposals examining basic and clinical sciences with the ultimate aim of improving the quality of care for musculoskeletal patients. New or experienced investigators are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to proposals that include functional outcomes assessments. Proposals will be subjected to a peer-review process and only the highest quality projects will receive funding.
