TERMIS-AP announces the Call for nomination of 2022 TERMIS-AP Awards
The deadline for the submission of nominations for the 2022 TERMIS-AP Awards Program is Tuesday, July 5th, 2022.




TERMIS-AM is excited to announce the establishment of the Jensen Tissue Engineering Award - a gift from Dr. Ole T. Jensen, a world-renowned oral surgeon and innovative businessman. The Jensen Tissue Engineering Award has been established “to recognize an individual (anywhere in the world) for sustained scientific contributions, translational impact towards clinical realization and professional distinction in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.” Anyone from the scientific community can be nominated, but, in order to be awarded with this prize, that person must become a member of TERMIS and be nominated by a TERMIS member.  

The award will be issued annually during a TERMIS conference (Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe or World Congress).  The location of the award issuance will be dependent on the location in which the award recipient resides. The award recipient is expected to give a presentation and must attend the TERMIS Chapter or World Congress conference to be presented with the award.

During the respective Chapter Conference (AM, AP or EU) or World Congress, the recipient of the Jensen Tissue Engineering Award will be presented with a silver medallion and a monetary award of $25,000 USD.

Nomination Package Requirements

The nominator should provide:

  • a summary of the nominee’s achievement(s) in the field of TERM (1-2 pages total), including how these accomplishments fulfil the Jensen award criteria,
  • plus the nominee’s curriculum vitae.
  • An individual cannot apply for the award. 

2023 Submission Deadline:  17th October 2022


Please send any questions you may have regarding the Jensen Tissue Engineering Award to the Executive Administrator.  Submissions are due by 17th October 2022.
