The mission of the Cervical Spine Research Society is to carry out research and exchange information on the cervical spine. To help achieve this goal, the Society is offering awards for outstanding, unpublished research papers.

Generous contributions from our industry colleagues and donations from members fund the CSRS Research Program.

Award Categories:

  • Clinical
  • Basic Science
  • Resident/Fellow

First, second and third place papers in each of the three categories are selected for awards in amounts of $2,000, $1,000 and $500, respectively. Candidates for all three awards will be selected from the top-scoring online abstract submissions as chosen by the Awards Committee.

Authors of the selected abstracts will be required to submit a short manuscript amplifying the abstract information.

Award winners must attend the annual meeting in November/December to present the paper and receive the monetary award.

If you would like your paper to be reviewed as a Research Award paper, please select the appropriate field when submitting your abstract on the CSRS Online Abstract Center.
