Department of


John M. Tew, Jr., MD, Award in Surgical Neuro-Oncology

The John M. Tew, Jr., MD, Award in Surgical Neuro-Oncology is an annual award intended to stimulate brain tumor research by neurosurgical residents at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. The award is sponsored by the UC Brain Tumor Center to recognize Dr. John Tew’s contributions to the field of surgical neuro-oncology.

The focus of the work should be on brain tumors (primary or metastatic) and could consist of either basic science or clinical research. Basic science research with potential translation to clinical trials will be given special consideration. Clinical research could be either prospective or retrospective studies. Case reports will not be considered.

A significant portion of the work should be performed at the University of Cincinnati. We encourage submission of a paper recently submitted or published in a peer-reviewed journal. If not yet published, presentation of the results at a national meeting and/or publication of an abstract or poster presentation will also be favorably considered.

The submission deadline is May 1st. Please submit to Dr. Jeffrey T. Keller. The paper, if published, should be submitted as a ‘pdf’ reprint. If not published, submit your manuscript in hard and electronic copy following the guidelines of Neurosurgery. A selection committee consisting of faculty from the Department of Neurosurgery and the UC Brain Tumor Center will review the submissions. The winner will be announced at the graduation dinner and will receive a check in the amount of $2000.
