Redwood City, CA: March 26, 2019, For Immediate Release

Society for Vascular Surgery Foundation and Vascular Cures to Host 2019 Wylie Scholar Award

The Society of Vascular Surgery Foundation and Vascular Cures are pleased to be hosting the 2019 Wylie Scholar Award.  The annual Wylie Scholar Award in Academic Vascular Surgery is designed to support the career development of promising young vascular surgeon-scientists in North America who are combining their clinical practice with innovative academic research.  Wylie Scholars go on to become North America’s world-class vascular surgeon-scientists; many are now chiefs at major academic centers, prominent leaders in the field, and play a key role in transformative SVS and Vascular Cures programs.

“The SVS Foundation is pleased to sponsor the 2019 Wylie Scholar Award.” said R. Clement Darling, III, MD, DFSVS, Chair of the SVS Foundation Chair. “The Foundation has a long history of funding vascular research that improves patient health through supporting young vascular surgeon scientists in advancing their research careers.”

Since 1996, the Wylie Scholar program has supported 21 surgeon-scientists at 14 institutions around the country who are changing care for the benefit of patients.  The intent of the award is to support crucial research that enables recipients to compete for future, more substantial support.  For each $150,000 award, Wylie Scholars have generated $3.5 million in subsequent national research funding – a return on investment of nearly 25 to 1.
