ABJS, CORR co-sponsor awards

The Association of Bone and Joint Surgeons (ABJS), in conjunction with Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research (CORR), is sponsoring the Nicolas Andry Award and the Marshall R. Urist Young Investigator Award. The deadline for submissions is Nov. 1, 2009. Eligible recipients for the $15,000 Nicolas Andry Award include experienced orthopaedic investigators, including surgeons doing clinically relevant basic or patient-oriented research. Submissions should review a body of work conducted and published over an extended period of time that deals with the musculoskeletal system and has significantly contributed to orthopaedic knowledge and practice. The work may be ongoing. Bodies of work that in substance have received previous awards are not eligible.

The $5,000 Marshall R. Urist Young Investigator Award is open to orthopaedic surgeon investigators under the age of 40, or with less than 7 years post-training (including fellowships) at the time of application. Submitted work must deal with clinically relevant laboratory or clinical research. This research may not have won an award or have been previously published as a full paper.

Simultaneous submissions for both awards will not be accepted. For more information, contact abjs@aaos.org
