ABJS seeks manuscripts for two awards
Manuscripts for two awards are being solicited by the Association of Bone and Joint Surgeons (ABJS), in conjunction with "Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research" (COOR). Applicants for the Marshall R. Urist Young Investigator Award must be less than 40 years old at the time of submission and the manuscript must relate to clinical research or clinically relevant laboratory research not previously published. The Nicolas Andry Award will be given to an orthopaedic investigator for musculoskeletal system work done over an extended period. The work should be ongoing and have significantly contributed to orthopaedic knowledge and practice. Winning papers will be presented at the ABJS annual meeting, June 8-12, 2005, in Carmel, Calif., and submitted to "Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research."
Submit manuscripts electronically via the CORR Web site.
