This award honors the memory and vision of Dr. James D. King, a surgeon-scientist who trained at Ohio State and received the first doctoral degree in surgical research ever presented by the University.
The James D. King Research Award promotes scientific excellence for surgeons in training. Other purposes for the award are to ensure that the masters student works with his/her advisor to develop a clear research project plan; to provide an opportunity for the student to receive external critique; to provide the student with oral presentation experience; and to promote interaction with other students.
The award was established by an endowment from Dr. King's son, Richard King, MD, while he was a chief resident in general surgery. Awardees receive a cash grant to use for educational purposes in their research training.
