The Franklin Rosenfeldt Award for Cardiac and Thoracic Surgical Research is a new award from Heart, Lung and Circulation, the peer-reviewed journal of ANZSCTS and the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand (CSANZ).
Named in honour of the Journal’s founding Editor-in-Chief and cardiac and thoracic surgeon, Franklin Rosenfeldt, the Award recognises innovation in clinical research in the field of cardiac and thoracic surgery.
The award will go to the most innovative original article with Australian and New Zealand cardiac and thoracic surgical authorship published in a print edition of Heart, Lung and Circulation in 2019, as judged by the Award Committee.
Heart, Lung and Circulation is honoured to have Franklin Rosenfeldt as one of the judges on the committee for this Inaugural Award, alongside contemporary journal editors Andrew Cochrane, Alistair Royce, Salvatore Pepe, and Editor-in-Chief Robert Denniss.
Heart, Lung and Circulation looks forward to announcing & presenting the award at an event at the ANZSCTS Annual Scientific Meeting, 7-10 November, 2019.
