In 2015, The Plastic Surgery Foundation (The PSF) awarded 31 Investigator-Initiated projects and allocated over $810,000 to support the newest, clinically relevant research in plastic surgery.

    The American Society of Plastic Surgeons/PSF leadership is committed to continuing to provide high levels of investigator initiated research support to ensure that plastic surgeons have the needed research resources to be pioneers and innovators in advancing the practice of medicine.
