The intent of this award — which is supported by the Journal of Surgical Research and its publisher, Elsevier Science — is to provide early-career research support to junior faculty members of the AAS.
(Applications which exceed the page limitations WILL NOT BE REVIEWED.)
A committee, consisting of the councilors of the AAS, president-elect, and ad-hoc members as needed, will review all proposals. The top rated proposals will be selected as finalists, and these applicants will be invited to interview with the selection committee during the 2015 Academic Surgical Congress. The award recipient will be selected from these finalists and will be announced at the AAS Research Awards Session at the 2015 Academic Surgical Congress. A one-page formal report of the research project and pertinent publications resulting from the funding of the research award should be forwarded to the office of the secretary upon completion of the research project. The award recipient will present an oral report at the annual AAS meeting following the conclusion of the grant.
Acceptance of Award
This proposal may be submitted to other funding sources for support, but this must be acknowledged on the application form. Submission for support elsewhere will not affect the evaluation of this proposal. However, should the applicant be awarded the Roslyn Award, there must be no scientific or budgetary overlap between the Roslyn Award and other awards or grants. If scientific or budgetary overlap does exist between the Roslyn Award and another awards or grants, the investigator will be required to accept only one source of funding.
