Clinical Investigator Awards

In 2007, SSO established a new Clinical Investigator Award (CIA) program with the goal of promoting patient-oriented research through the training of surgical oncologists in clinical and translational science.

Beginning with the 2013-2015 awards cycle, the administration and management of the CIA program is handled by the SSO Foundation (formerly the James Ewing Foundation), including the solicitation of the CIA grant funding and support.

Applicants must be surgical oncologists within 8 years of completion of training and be full SSO members for at least 6 months prior to application submission to be eligible for the award.
