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 SA (France), Himled (USA), EincoBio (Brazyl).
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 the 30th September 2014.
