April 1999 AAOS Report
Kappa Delta, OREF awards deadline in July
July 1 is the deadline for submitting original manuscripts for
2000 Kappa Delta Awards and the Orthopaedic Research and
Education Foundation (OREF) Clinical Research Award.
Manuscripts for the Kappa Delta Awards should focus
on the results of basic or clinical research relating
to the musculoskeletal system. The papers also must
represent either a large volume or many years of
scientific work or describe a single research project
of unquestionable significance. The OREF Clinical Research
Award will focus on the recognition of outstanding clinical
research related directly to musculoskeletal disease or injury.
Up to three $20,000 Kappa Delta Awards will be given, one of
which is designated for "Young Investigators." The OREF
Clinical Research Award also is $20,000. Contact AAOS, department of research and scientific affairs,
