The deadline for entries for the 2016 award is Feb. 1. 

A panel of nationally prominent experts will judge nominees based on their contribution to translating basic research findings into clinical applications and by the manner in which their clinical practice connects to their research.  All clinician-scientists worldwide are eligible, excluding U-M researchers.
