The American College of Surgeons (ACS) Surgical Research Committee is accepting nominations for the eleventh Joan L. and Julius H. Jacobson II Promising Investigator Award, to be conferred in 2015. This award recognizes outstanding surgeons engaged in research, advancing the art and science of surgery, and demonstrating early promise of significant contribution to the practice of surgery and the safety of surgical patients.

Surgeons who are at the “tipping point” of their research careers with a track record indicative of early promise and potential will receive special consideration. Well-established surgeon-scientists are ineligible for this award. To be considered for the award this year, submissions must be received no later than March 27.For complete details on award criteria and nomination procedures, visit the Jacobson Promising Investigator Award section on the ACS website at For additional information, contact Carla Manosalvas, Administrator, Committees and Educational Programs Division of Research and Optimal Patient Care, at
