U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command


The U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command is soliciting

research proposals on a broad range of basic science and clinical

issues related to biomechanical stress on the skeleton.  This program

has been developed in collaboration with the National Institutes of

Health.  The goal of this program is to advance understanding of

methods to improve bone health of young men and women, enhancing

military readiness by reducing the incidence of fracture during

physically intensive training and reducing the incidence of

osteoporosis later in life.


Proposals will be selected for funding on the basis of high quality

science.  Potential application to military populations will be

considered in this award.  Projects are typically 2-4 years in

duration and must be completed by 30 September 2003.  Approximately

$9.5M is available for the lifespan of these projects.  Full

proposals must be submitted according to general instructions

contained in the Broad Agency Announcement 95-1 (available on the

internet at  Letters of intent

containing a proposed title, brief description of project scope

(<150words), and investigator and institution identification, are due

by 3 September 1997.  Full proposals are due by 4:00 pm EST, 1

October 1997.  Investigators will be notified about funding

recommendations by February 1998.
