Elisabeth Pickett Research Award Program

The Elisabeth Pickett Research Award Program makes funds available for small research grants for basic science or clinical urologic research. The award may be used to continue or supplement a current project or to initiate new study.

Each candidate for the award must be a trained urologist (MD/DO), a urology resident/fellow, or a post-doctoral basic scientist with a research interest in urologic related diseases and dysfunction. Each candidate must also be a current member in good standing with SWIU.

The winner(s) of the award is determined by the SWIU Research Committee on scientific merit of the research proposal. Additionally, the committee considers how the project, or portions of project, can be accommodated by the amount of funding available

The winner is asked to present a brief summary of their research at the SWIU Annual Breakfast Meeting at the AUA Annual Meeting on Sunday, May 17, 2015. The winner is also invited to the Women Leaders in Urology Forum and the Networking Reception on Monday, May 18, 2015.

At the completion of the project, awardee must submit a brief project summary for review by SWIU. The summary shall include results of research in two forms: (a) technical report (b) a report in lay terms. Finally, awardee must acknowledge SWIU in any publication arising from work supported by the Elisabeth Pickett Award. SWIU asks awardees to furnish a copy of any resulting publications to SWIU.

The Elisabeth Pickett Research Award Application will be available in September 2014. The SWIU Research Committee will review each received application and a winner will be announced in March, 2015. The winner of the award is determined by the SWIU Research Committee on scientific merit of the submitted abstracts.

Application deadline has passed.
