1998 AWARD
THE TANNER-VANDEPUT-BOSWICK BURN PRIZE

The Tanner-Vandeput Burn Prize (now the Tanner-Vandeput-Boswick Burn Prize) was started in 1984 by Dr J.C. Tanner of Atlanta, Georgia, co-inventor with Dr. Jacques Vandeput of the Tanner-Vandeput mesh dermatome. The Prize was conceived and established to promote the aims of the International Society for Burn Injuries and to motivate individual investigators to perform research, undertake patient care and treatment, and attempt to solve other aspects of the burn problem. In 1984 the ISBI Executive Committee voted to accept Dr Tanner's offer to work with the ISBI in coordinating the Prize, which consists of a cash payment and a gold and diamond pin. The Prize is awarded at each Quadrennial Congress of the ISBI. The International Burn Foundation was created to promote and administer the Prize. In 1991 Dr Tanner requested that the name be changed to the "Tanner Vandeput-Boswick Burn Prize" to reflect the contributions of Dr John Boswick, who has been Chairman of the Foundation Board of Directors since inception. The first award was Presented to Dr Ian Alan Holder of Cincinnati at the 7th ISBI Congress in Melbourne in 1986. The second award was presented to Dr Fortunato Benairn of Buenos Aires at the 8th ISBI Congress in New Delhi in 1990. The third award was presented to Dr John F Burke of Boston at the 9th ISBI Congress in Paris in 1994. The next award will be presented at the 10th ISBI Congress to be held in November in Israel. The Prize consists of a gold pin and a cash payment anticipated to be in excess of $ 100,000. The Prize will go to a person (or persons) who in the opinion of the Prize Committee has made an outstanding contribution to any aspect of the burn field. This could be a specific achievement or might represent a body of work over a period of years. The recipient does not have to be a physician or a member of the ISBI. Nominations for the 1998 Prize may be made by colleagues of those who have made such major contributions, or a candidate may make application on his own behalf. Anyone interested in making a nomination should request an application form from the International Burn Foundation at the address below.
