Nominations for Jacobson Promising Investigator Award accepted through February 28 The American College of Surgeons (ACS) Surgical Research Committee is accepting nominations until February 28 for the 10th Joan L. and Julius H. Jacobson II Promising Investigator Award, to be conferred in 2014. This award recognizes outstanding surgeons who engage in research, advance the art and science of surgery, and demonstrate early promise of significant contribution to surgical practice and the safety of surgical patients.
Surgeons who are at the “tipping point” of their research careers with a track record indicative of early promise and potential will receive special consideration for the award. Well-established surgeon-scientists are ineligible. To be considered for the award in 2014, submissions must be received by the February 28 deadline.
