The Association of Bone and Joint Surgeons (ABJS) in conjunction with the trade journal Clinical Orthopaedics & Related Research is sponsoring the ninth annual Nicolas Andry Award. The award will be given to an experienced orthopaedic investigator for a body of work dealing with the musculoskeletal system done over an extended time period. The work should be ongoing, but also should have significantly contributed to orthopaedic knowledge and practice to date. All orthopaedic surgeons participating in clinically-related research are invited to submit a manuscript by Dec. 1. For more information, contact ABJS, 6300 N. River Rd., Suite 727, Rosemont, Ill. 60018, (708) 698-1636.
