Congratulations to Dr. Aziz the recipient of the inaugural clinical trials initiative award

Congratulations Dr. Aziz who is the recipient of the inaugural clinical trials initiative award supported by a joint venture on behalf of the AUA, eSAS, FAER, IARS, and SOCCA. This was a highly competitive process. There were 17 impressive applications, and in the end three winners were selected. Mike's proposal titled "Optimized Opioid Management or Usual Treatment to Reduce Opioid Use Following Surgery (OPT-OUT): A Pragmatic,Patient-Centered Trial" was chosen for this award. The purpose of this grant is to help strengthening the concept proposal so that it is likely to be competitive for a major grant submission.

Several members in the department should be acknowledged for their contribution to this successful application including JulioGonzalez-Sotomayor, Cobin Solberg, Andrei Sdrulla, Sydney Rose, Grace Chen, and Nabil Alkayed.
