AAOS Seeks Award Manuscripts

2013 Kappa Delta, OREF Award deadline approaching

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) is soliciting manuscripts for the 2013 Kappa Delta Awards and the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF) Clinical Research Award. Up to two $20,000 Kappa Delta awards—the Elizabeth Winston Lanier Award and the Ann Doner Vaughan Award, one $20,000 Kappa Delta Young Investigator award, and one $20,000 OREF Clinical Research Award will be bestowed, provided manuscripts of requisite quality are submitted.

Manuscripts should represent a large body of cohesive scientific work generally reflecting years of investigation. If the submission reflects a single project, it should be of high significance and impact. Manuscripts must be submitted by members (or candidate members) of the AAOS, ORS, Canadian Orthopaedic Association, or Canadian Orthopaedic Research Society.

Submissions for the 2013 Kappa Delta and OREF Clinical Research Awards will be accepted in electronic format only. PDF submissions are due to kappadelta@aaos.org by 11:59 p.m. CDT on July 1, 2012. Late submissions will not be considered.

Winners of the 2013 Kappa Delta and OREF Clinical Research Awards will be expected to attend both the Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS) Annual Meeting, Jan. 26–29, 2013, in San Antonio, Texas, and the AAOS Annual Meeting, March 19–23, 2013, in Chicago.
