SSO supports research through three research awards that are offered to members. The SSO Clinical Investigator Award supports patient-oriented research conducted by surgical oncologists in clinical and translational science. The SSO Young Investigator Award in Surgical Oncology promotes and recognizes translational or clinical research that advances innovative ideas and concepts designed to improve health outcomes through advances in the delivery of cancer-related care. A second Young Investigator award is supported by the Appendix Cancer, Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (PMP) Research Foundation with a focus on appendix cancer, pseudomyxoma peritonei, peritoneal surface malignancies/peritoneal carcinomatosis (as related to appendix cancer and/or pseudomyxoma peritonei) and/or HIPEC generally as a treatment for appendix cancer/pseudomyxoma peritonei.
Funding for the SSO Clinical Investigator Award (CIA) award and Young Investigator Award (YIA) are made possible through the SSO Research and Education Fund. 100% of your donation will be used to support the mission of the SSO Research and Education Fund, established with the restricted funds of the former SSO Foundation.
