RE: H. Richard Winn, M.D. Prize
It is my sincere pleasure to announce the third annual H. Richard Winn, M.D. Prize of the Society of Neurological Surgeons. The purpose of this international award is to encourage research in the neurosciences and to recognize outstanding, continuous commitment to research in the neurosciences by a neurological surgeon. This prize both recognizes the accomplishments of Dr. Winn, and seeks to reward a neurological surgeon who has made, and continues to make, substantial contributions to clinical or basic neuroscience. The goal of The Winn Prize is to recognize accomplished, but active investigators and not to honor individuals whose career, however distinguished, is emeritus.
The award recipient will receive an engraved gold medal, a leather-bound volume of their reprints, expenses for attending the SNS Annual meeting, and a $3000 cash prize.
Attached please find a detailed description of the requirements for the prize application, and contact information for the nomination process. The deadline for nominations is December 30, 2010.We request that all nominations be sent electronically.
On behalf of the SNS, I would appreciate it if you could distribute this information widely to individuals in your institution, or organization that might help us find the most qualified individuals for consideration by the selection committee for this honor.
Ralph G. Dacey, Jr., M.D.
Chairman, Winn Prize Committee
