ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association Award for Thyroid Cancer Research
The AAES is proud to announce a brand-new award: ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association Award for Thyroid Cancer Research. This $20,000 award was developed by the generous support of ThyCa to promote and support thyroid cancer research by AAES members.
ThyCa is a national non-profit organization of thyroid cancer survivors, family members, and health professionals, dedicated to education, communication, support, awareness for early detection, and thyroid cancer research fundraising and research grants.
The ThyCa Award for Thyroid Cancer Research welcomes proposals for support of a wide spectrum of research topics including surgical ethics, education, epidemiology, biostatistics, health care delivery, as well as clinical or basic science research pertaining to the field of thyroid cancer. This award may be used for bridge or supplemental funding for research protocols with existing funding.
The application for both the ThyCa Award for Thyroid Cancer Research and the Paul LoGerfo Research Award is now available.

The Paul LoGerfo Research Award (PLRA) was developed to honor the life of Paul LoGerfo who made numerous major contributions to the field of endocrine surgery during his esteemed career. Dr LoGerfo passed away from malignant melanoma in 2003 during the peak of his career while serving as President of the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons.
The mission of the PLRA is to enrich the discipline of endocrine surgery and to advance the careers of junior investigators who are interested in a career in academic endocrine surgery. These goals will be pursued by supporting grant proposals that will broaden the horizon of endocrine surgery and advance the career-goals of junior endocrine surgeons. The PLRA welcomes proposals for support of a wide spectrum of research topics pertaining to the field of endocrine surgery. In 2017, two grants will be awarded, in either clinical research (including surgical ethics, education, epidemiology, biostatistics, and health care delivery) or basic and applied research. The maximum amount of each award is $15,000/year. The PLRA may be used for bridge or supplemental funding for research protocols with existing funding.
Applications are due February 15, 2017. Questions should be directed to the Chair of the Research and Education Committee.
The award recipient and title of the project will be announced at the AAES 2017 Annual Meeting in Orlando, FL, and in other AAES-sponsored publications.
