President's Prize

Once again, we are accepting submissions for the 'President's Prize' session. Please complete the relevant section of the online abstract submission form.

The objective of this prize is to showcase and reward more clearly some of the outstanding research that has been undertaken by members of our training body.

The Prize session is open only to submissions that relate to research undertaken as part of a full time period away from training posts, and which are all, or in part, leading to submission for a higher degree of MS or PhD/DPhil standard (expressly not shorter MSc project material/dissertations). Succinct summary presentations of important novel findings will be welcomed, and the prize awarded (if an appropriate submission is delivered) for the most outstanding contribution to the advancement of surgical science related to the field of plastic, reconstructive, and aesthetic surgery. 

The decision to accept papers for this session will be entirely at the discretion of the organising committee, and will be final and binding. Applicants for papers to be considered for this session are invited to send a short summary of their work, detailing where it has been based and over what period of study. Please submit this via the online abstract submission system.

The organising committee reserves the right not to award the Prize in any given year. The prize winner will receive a commemorative medal and free registration to a BAPRAS scientific meeting.
