Reporting Avenues for Concerns Related to Integrity or Fairness

F10B reviews fellowship applications seeking training in basic and clinical aspects of musculoskeletal, rehabilitation, and skin sciences.

Proposed training can be in research areas including dermatology, clinical studies of the musculoskeletal system and rehabilitation, establishment and analyses of preclinical animal models of musculoskeletal and skin diseases, basic studies of the anatomy, function, and regeneration of musculoskeletal and skin structures, and bioengineering and therapeutic solutions for musculoskeletal and skin repair.

The List of Reviewers lists all present, whether standing members or temporary, to provide the full scope of expertise present on that date. Lists are posted 30 days before the meeting and are tentative, pending any last minute changes.

Review Dates


  • Organ system physiology and pathobiology studies that utilize genetic and molecular biological approaches in musculoskeletal and skin systems.
  • Experimental models, clinical studies and studies on the mechanisms of disease states including biomechanics and exercise physiology involving musculoskeletal systems.
  • Tissue engineering for replacement or repair of damaged, missing or poorly functioning of musculoskeletal structures or tissues and skin.
  • Rehabilitation of musculoskeletal system including physical therapy methods, kinesiology, and engineering and testing of musculoskeletal prostheses.

Shared Interests and Overlaps

There are shared interests with Fellowships: Cell Biology, Developmental Biology, and Bioengineering [F05]. Applications that focus on fundamental aspects cell biology, bioengineering and technology development may be assigned to F05, whereas applications focusing on tissue engineering and biomedical or clinical research may be assigned to F10B.

There are shared interests with Physiology and Pathobiology of Cardiovascular and Respiratory Systems [ F10A ]. Applications involving basic and clinical aspects of cardiovascular and respiratory systems in the context of cardiac contractile function, cardiac hypertrophy, and heart failure may be reviewed in [F10A], whereas applications that have a focus on contractile function in the context of skeletal muscle may be assigned to [F10B].
