Nominees will make a 5-minute poster presentation for the Review Committee via zoom, followed by a 2-minute Q&A (date in May to be announced). The Review Committee will select 5 (five) finalists winners, who will share their innovative science at the 19th Annual WHSI Conference in New York, on June 24-25, 2022.
On Friday, 24 June 2022, during a Lightning Podium Session, each finalist will deliver a 10-minute presentation followed by a 5-minute Q&A.
Please present your abstracts to compete for the Young Innovator Award. The Award Committee will review abstracts and select presentations, which will be scored. Five finalists will be selected based on organization of the presentation, innovation, and feasibility of medical translation to the clinical wound healing field. Both, basic science and clinical medicine, including all aspects of tissue regeneration, clinical diagnostics and therapeutics (wound care, diabetic limb salvage, etc.) and the research potential for industry advancement, are equally competitive for the award.
The WHSI forum is an opportunity for award finalists to present to an audience of experts in various fields, and receive an award certificate and $250 travel award, in recognition of their extraordinary accomplishments. A newsletter featuring the finalists will be published after the competition and the 2022 awardees will be posted at the 2023 Young Innovator Award event.
