Now Accepting Applications for 2018 Research Awards
The AAES and AAES Foundation are now accepting applications for the 2018 Research Awards cycle. Applications are due February 16, 2018.
The Paul LoGerfo Research Award was developed to honor the life of Paul LoGerfo who made numerous major contributions to the field of endocrine surgery during his esteemed career. Dr. LoGerfo passed away from malignant melanoma in 2003 during the peak of his career while serving as President of the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons.
The ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association Award for Thyroid Cancer Research was developed in 2017 by the generous support of ThyCa to promote and support thyroid cancer research by AAES members.

The award recipients and title of the projects will be announced at the 2018 AAES Annual Meeting in Durham, NC and in other AAES-sponsored publications.
