Transplant Registry Early Career Award

As the February 1 deadline for submission of ISHLT Award applications is approaching, I would like to bring the attention of the members of our Society to the Transplant Registry Early Career Award. This award is open to fellows and junior faculty (Instructor and Assistant Professor level) interested in addressing a clinical question using the Registry data. The awards will be presented at the 2013 ISHLT Annual Meeting in Montréal.

In the 12 months following the awards presentation, the award recipients will have an opportunity to learn about the Registry, and work with the Registry staff and Associate Directors on their project.

I would especially like to invite non-US applicants to take advantage of this opportunity. I also encourage more seasoned ISHLT members to talk to their fellows and junior faculty about this award, and help them with advancing a research question and formulating a strong proposal.

A tip for the applicants: Review the Registry data elements carefully before you get too far with your proposal. The list of variables collected by the Registry, and the award application, are available at:

We look forward to receiving your applications!
