Building the Foundation: Our Future in Hand
For 25 years, the American Foundation for Surgery of the Hand has proudly supported basic scientific research on topics that have been the most relevant to our membership.
Over the years, members have asked for bigger grants to pursue topics with broader application.
Our 25th Anniversary capital campaign will raise funds needed to fund bigger grants and help provide not just great scientific insights, but clinical insights as well.
The American Foundation for Surgery of the Hand is dedicated to funding the highest quality in both basic science and clinical research.
- Compelling research drives new information in the field of hand and upper extremity surgery.
- Quality research can produce paradigm-changing scientific studies; it leads to the best papers and fosters development of new treatment algorithms, surgical techniques, and devices.
- Excellent clinical research changes physician practice to achieve improved patient outcomes.
