Yale U. Castlio, DO, Prize for Research

All KCU faculty, students and residents who are participating in the 2023 KCU Research Symposium were also invited to submit their research project for consideration for the Yale U. Castlio, DO, Prize for Research (formerly the Betty Jo White Prize for Research).

The submission due date was Friday, March 20, 2023.

This Prize for Research was established to encourage research activity at Kansas City University. Projects receiving the prize will significantly advance the osteopathic medical profession and the University’s position in the research community.

The purpose of the Prize for Research is to provide funding for eligible students, residents, and faculty of KCU to pursue osteopathic research projects and the teaching thereof, and/or to advance osteopathic surgical research and the teaching thereof.

Qualified studies may fall within the fields of surgery (including post-op and safe zone surgical studies), osteopathic manipulative medicine (including cranial-sacral therapies and myofascial release), lymphatic research, musculoskeletal research, neurological research (including neurodegenerative disease, spinal fluid, and spinal cord injuries), tissue regeneration and healing (including burn research and bone grafting), stem cell research, cloning and nutrition.

A committee will determine the recipient of the Prize for Research. The prize may be applied toward the research project, publication and printing of results, travel for presentation of research project, or equipment needs. Funds may not be applied toward personnel expenses.

A report of progress, use of funds, findings, etc. must be submitted to the committee and ultimately, the donor, at the end of the calendar year in which the prize was awarded.

At the discretion of the committee, the prize may be awarded to the same project in consecutive years, not to exceed three consecutive years.
