2017 Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Prize in Surgery & Immunology
The Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute is accepting nominations for the 2017 Thomas E. Starzl Prize in Surgery and Immunology, awarded annually to a national or international leader in the field of organ transplantation and immunology.
The Thomas E. Starzl prize in Surgery and Immunology was established in 1996 to honor the clinical and scientific contributions of Dr. Starzl, a pioneer in transplantation. The prize consists of a crystal award, an honorarium of $10,000, and travel expenses to the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in the spring of 2017 to formally receive the award and to present the Thomas E. Starzl Prize in Surgery and Immunology lecture. During the visit, the winner will also participate in related activities and meet informally with faculty, post-doctoral fellows and students.
The deadline for receipt of all nomination materials is May 1, 2016.
