Orthopedic and trauma surgeon at CMSC and JWI receives research awards for work on osteoarthritis and knife injuries
In September 2023, there was good news for the Center for Musculoskeletal Surgery (CMSC) and the Julius Wolff Institute (JWI) of Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. BIH Charité Clinician Scientist and orthopedic and trauma surgeon, Tazio Maleitzke, received three awards for his clinical and basic science research work in recent years.
The Ferdinand Sauerbruch Research Prize was awarded this year to Tazio for his work on the systemic and local regulation of joint inflammation. The prestigious prize has been awarded by the Berliner Chirurgischen Gesellschaft (BCG) since 1991 and promotes outstanding scientific work by young surgeons.
The NIS Generali Prize of the Deutschen Gesellschaft für Unfallchirurgie (DGU) is also awarded annually for scientific work that contributes to improving the quality of care for severely injured patients. Tazio and co-authors* received this year's award for their research on the predictive relevance of routine laboratory parameters in knife injuries.
Lastly, Tazio and co-authors received the BIH QUEST NULL Results Award, which recognizes scientific papers in which zero or negative results were published. This is to counteract the publication bias of positive results. We would like to congratulate Tazio, the Research Group for Regenerative Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery (ROUX), and the colleagues involved.
