Bone and joint surgeons seek applications for two awardsThe Association of Bone and Joint Surgeons (ABJS), in conjunction with Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research, is calling for applications to two major awards for clinically relevant laboratory or clinical research. The annual Marshall R. Urist Young Investigator Award of $5,000 will go to an orthopaedic surgeon investigator under 40 years of age, or with less than seven years post-training (including fellowships) at the time of appointment. The Nicolas Andry Award of $15,000 is annually given to an experienced orthopaedic investigator.
Winning papers for both awards must be presented at the ABJS annual meeting, June 16-20, 2004 in Nashville, Tenn., and will be submitted as manuscripts for publication in Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research.
Submissions must be sent electronically via the CORRONLINE Web site (www.corronline.com) and must adhere to the guidelines for Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research. Instructions for submission and guidelines for manuscript preparation are available on the Web site. Submissions will not be accepted after November 1, 2003.
