The University of California, San Diego’s Department of Orthopaedic Surgery is proud to announce that our very own Richard L. Lieber, PhD, has received the prestigious Kappa Delta/OREF Clinical Research Award. In 1947, at its Golden Anniversary, Kappa Delta Sorority announced the establishment of the Kappa Delta Research Fellowship in Orthopaedics, the first award ever created to honor achievements in the field of orthopaedic research. The first annual award was made available to the Academy in 1949 and presented at their annual meeting in 1950. The Kappa Delta Awards have been presented by the Academy at their annual meeting to persons who have performed research in orthopaedic surgery that is of high significance and impact.
Please join us in congratulating Dr. Lieber.
