Gabriella and Mario Zuccarello, MD, Award for Cerebrovascular Research

The Gabriella and Mario Zuccarello, MD, Award for Cerebrovascular Research is an annual award intended to spur cerebrovascular research by neurosurgical residents at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.

This research may include basic science research, translational research, and direct application of investigative studies (e.g. clinical trials, clinical observations, chart and literature reviews) for improvement, and understanding and/or management of patient care, including the introduction of new innovative surgical techniques and technology. The clinical studies may be prospective or retrospective. Case studies fall within the scope of this award, especially if they are “ground breaking”.

We encourage submission of a paper recently published in a peer reviewed journal. That said, if not yet published, presentation of the results at a national meeting and/or publication of an abstract or poster presentation will also be favorably considered.

The submission deadline is May 2, 2017. Submit to the Neurosurgery Education office. The paper, if published, should be submitted as a ‘pdf’ reprint. If not published, submit your manuscript in hard and electronic copy following the guidelines of Neurosurgery. Papers will be reviewed by a faculty committee. The winner will be announced and receive a check in the amount of $3,000 at the graduation dinner, June 2, 2017.
