ABJS/CORR seek submissions for Urist, Andry Awards
The Association of Bone and Joint Surgeons (ABJS), in conjunction with Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research (CORR), has issued a call for manuscripts for the Marshall R. Urist Young Investigator Award and the Nicolas Andry Award. The deadline for submissions for either award is Oct. 1, 2012.

The $5,000 Urist Award is limited to orthopaedic surgeon investigators younger than age 40 or with fewer than 7 years of post-training (including fellowships) at the time of application. The submitted work must deal with clinically relevant laboratory or clinical research related to the musculoskeletal system and should reflect work primarily done by the young investigator. This research may not have won an award or been previously published as a full paper. Only one manuscript per principal investigator may be submitted.

The $25,000 Andry Award is open to experienced orthopaedic investigators, including surgeons doing clinically relevant basic or patient-oriented research. Submissions should review a body of musculoskeletal research that has significantly contributed to orthopaedic knowledge and has been conducted and published over an extended period of time. The work may be ongoing. Bodies of work that in substance have received previous awards are not eligible.
