The Plastic Surgery Foundation (PSF) is teaming up with the Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation (MTF) to fund research grants that will advance the science of tissue transplantation, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine.

As part of the partnership, MTF will provide the PSF with $100,000 to support innovative research related to allogeneic tissues and their use in cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery.

The $100,000 will be administered through the PSF’s “Investigator Initiated Research Grant Program.”

Selected research grant applications will receive funding through the PSF beginning July 1, 2013.

“MTF’s support for funding research in this pivotal area of plastic surgery is unprecedented for the PSF,” says PSF President Charles Verheyden, MD, PhD, a plastic surgeon in Temple, Texas, in a news release. “We are excited to be aligned with MTF on this grant initiative.”
