My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Airlift Research Foundation, Pittsburgh, PA, USA
I am a researcher in bone repair and regeneration. I had quite experience with the foundation. The airlift foundation was formerly aircast foundation, which supported orthopedic research. I submitted my proposals to them three times, it was not funded. But the feedback helped me continue to improve my research quality. In 2009, the foundation restructured and focused on orthopedic research on wounded soldiers. Fortunately, my research was eventually funded by airlift research foundation in 2009. In this project, I proposed to study on anti-infection and bone regeneration. More fortunately, when I had personal interaction with the injured soldiers and their families in the meetings the foundation organized, I started to realize the real impact on injured soldiers and civilians my research may have. I am also very glad that I could share my experience with my trainees and colleagues.
