How Can I Help?

By supporting the AASF, you help assure that only the best is good enough for you as patients and surgeons. We do not want to look back in 20 or 30 or 50 years and say “we lost our preeminence as the world surgical leaders because we were unable to do the research and provide the educational opportunities that would keep us in the forefront.”


“I am extremely grateful to the AASF for the opportunity their award provided me.  It enabled me to complete cutting edge research with several dedicated and brilliant surgeon and physician scientists, without financial concerns.  The financial security of the award provided me the freedom to utilize state-of-the-art techniques, pursue interesting avenues of discovery, and to truly perform science for the sake of science.  Thank you.”

“It was an unparalleled experience to perform basic science research with the help of the AAS Foundation Research Fellowship Award.

I believe this award has been a great foundation for me as I start my academic career. I’m most grateful for the honor of being a recipient of this prestigious award.”
