Surgical Investigator Tipping Point Award
To inspire and support new transformative health services research on surgical care and outcomes, the CSPH created the Surgical Investigator Tipping Point Award. Designed to help faculty pursue the pilot data needed to obtain extramural funding, the Award provides the necessary start-up funding for potentially cutting-edge research and up-and-coming investigators. Each $40,000 award may be used towards data collection efforts, analyst time, project manager support, and other necessary items needed to develop extramural funding proposals. Two awards will be made, with one granted every six months over the next year. In its inaugural year, the Award recognized the work of Joaquim Havens, MD, and Nelya Melnitchouk, MD, two rising stars in their respective fields of Emergency General Surgery and Colorectal Cancer.
