Purpose of the Award
This award provides recognition for a young researcher who has done outstanding clinical laboratory research contributing to the understanding, care or prevention of injuries to the knee.
To be considered for the Albert Trillat Young Investigator's Award, applicants must first submit an abstract related to clinical laboratory knee research for the ISAKOS Congress
followed by the online award application. Applicants must be aged 40 years or less at the time of the 2019 Congress and be the principal investigator of the research submitted.
Applicants are required to provide their curriculum vitae, and agree to provide a manuscript following the
Journal of ISAKOS criteria if selected as a finalist.
Abstracts and award applications must be submitted before March 10, 2021.
All abstracts submitted for the Albert Trillat Young Investigator’s Award
will be reviewed by members of the ISAKOS Knee: Sports & Preservation
Committee. Five finalists will be chosen based upon a 20 point grading
scale scoring the quality of the topic (5 points), clarity of writing (5
points) and scientific quality (10 points). The five finalists are required
to submit a blinded and unblinded manuscript following Journal of ISAKOS criteria
by the given deadline. The committee will review the
manuscripts based upon the same scoring system and will select a winner
based on those results.
Registration to the ISAKOS Congress will be waived for the winner. The winner will present the paper after receiving a framed certificate and a cash honorarium of US $3,000 at the ISAKOS Congress.
The winning manuscript will also be submitted to Journal of ISAKOS for possible publication.
Note: Individuals are only permitted to receive one award per Congress, per abstract. ISAKOS award recipients, if not already an ISAKOS Member, are required to become an ISAKOS Member prior to receiving
their award. One year of Membership dues will waived.
