SVS Foundation Award Applications Due in January

Applications for two SVS Foundation surgeon-scientist awards are due in January 2020.

Applications for the prestigious Resident Research Award are due Jan. 15, 2020. This award — one of the most important opportunities for surgical trainees in vascular laboratories — is for early-career surgeons interested in research on the biology of vascular diseases and potential translational therapies.

The Resident Research Award is designed to provide special recognition of original scientific work that has yet to be published in manuscript form. This is an excellent opportunity for surgical trainees to be recognized and rewarded for their research efforts.

The winner will present his or her research at the 2020 Vascular Annual Meeting in Toronto, Canada, plus receive $5,000 and a one-year subscription to the Journal of Vascular Surgery.

Trainees may apply for the Vascular Research Initiatives Conference Trainee Award through Jan. 7, 2020. Authors of top-scoring abstracts will be selected and will receive complimentary registration to VRIC and to the American Heart Association Vascular Discovery Scientific Sessions, plus $1,000 for travel costs.

The award is open to current pre-med or medical students, general surgery residents and vascular residents or vascular fellows. Local winners will not receive travel funds.

VRIC will be Monday, May 4, 2020, in Chicago. Learn more at
