Call for Nominations: International Society for Ceramics in Medicine Raquel LeGeros Award
The Racquel LeGeros Award is established to recognize, encourage and stimulate outstanding research contributions to the field of bioceramics and is annually presented during the Bioceramics International Symposium and Annual Meeting of the International Society for Ceramics in Medicine. It consists of a certificate, a plaque and a refund of the registration fee and travelling expenses to the conference, in addition to an economic remuneration.
The nominee must have contributed significantly to the knowledge in the fields of bioceramics and biomineralization, where Racquel LeGeros was a true pioneer, through basic, experimental and/or clinical research. He/she must in addition have largely contributed to the Bioceramics Conference in the past, and be registered in its present edition.
Candidates will be assessed by an independent Bioceramics Award Committee, currently chaired by Prof. Maria-Pau Ginebra, integrated by three members of the ISCM Executive Comitee and a representative of the Award Sponsor (Biomatlante).
Any member of the International Society for Ceramics in Medicine may nominate candidates for the Raquel LeGeros Award. The proposer should send the curriculum vitae of the candidate along with a statement describing the reasons for nomination. The deadline for nomination of candidates for this award is September 30th 2014. Applications should be submitted to Prof. Maria-Pau Ginebra (firstname.lastname@example.org).

To support highly innovative, high-risk, high-reward research that could ultimately lead to critical discoveries or major advancements that will accelerate the field of cardiovascular and stroke research.
Research deemed innovative may introduce a new paradigm, challenge current paradigms, look at existing problems from new perspectives, or exhibit other uniquely creative qualities. The Innovative Research Grant (IRG) promotes new ideas; therefore, proposals need not include preliminary data. However, a solid rationale for the work must be provided. Proposed work should not be the next logical step of previous work, but should have a high probability of revealing new avenues of investigation, if successful. This program aims to provide pilot or seed funding that should lead to successful competition for additional funding beyond the pilot period.
The principal investigator (PI) is responsible for clearly and explicitly articulating the project's innovation and the potential impact on cardiovascular and stroke research.
Research broadly related to cardiovascular function and disease and stroke, or to related clinical, basic science, bioengineering or biotechnology, and public health problems, including multidisciplinary efforts.
Proposals are encouraged from all basic, behavioral, epidemiological, and community and clinical investigations that bear on cardiovascular and stroke problems.
At the time of application, the applicant must:
• Hold an M.D., Ph.D., D.O. or equivalent doctoral degree.
Eligibility for the Innovative Research Grant is not restricted based upon experience level or seniority. Seniority will not be used as a criterion in evaluating an application's merit.
At the time of award activation, must:
• Have a faculty (or faculty equivalent) appointment. This award is not intended for postdoctoral fellows or others in research training positions.
At time of application, must have one of the following designations:
