The Surgical Research Committee of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) is accepting applications for the 12th Joan L. and Julius H. Jacobson II Promising Investigator Award (JPIA), to be conferred in 2016. This award recognizes outstanding surgeons engaged in research who are advancing the art and science of surgery and demonstrating early promise of significant contribution to the practice of surgery and the safety of surgical patients. Applications must be submitted on or before February 26, 2016.
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 not eligible candidates.
