Congratulations to Dr. Augusto Zani and his team at the Zani Lab at the University of Toronto for winning one of the most sought-after pediatric surgery grants, the Jay Grosfeld, MD Scholar Grant.

Jay Grosfeld, MD Scholar Grant Recipients

The American Pediatric Surgical Association Foundation encourages the enrichment of pediatric surgeon scientists by providing support for projects which will broaden the horizon of the recipient in a fashion not otherwise readily achieved and for which funds may not be available from usual current sources. The APSA Foundation welcomes proposals for support of projects that encompass the humanities, medical ethics, education, clinical epidemiology, biostatistics, health care delivery, computer sciences, as well as clinical or laboratory research as they relate to the surgical sciences or to the delivery of pediatric surgical care and may include traveling fellowships or special scholarships.
