Clinical Scholar Research Award

The Clinical Scholar Research Award was created to further the understanding of anesthesiology and related sciences in clinical practice through clinical investigations. After awarding almost $5 million to 62 recipients from 1994 until 2011, this award became the IARS Mentored Research Award.
