Wyss Medical Foundation Honors Dr. Jesse Jupiter!

In honor of his career, the Wyss Medical Foundation will make a foundational gift to Massachusetts General Hospital, the Jesse B. Jupiter Fund. This support will reflect Dr. Jupiter’s contributions to society: 1) To research new technologies and fields to transform Hand Surgery, 2) To provide educational access to International Scholars, and 3) To create durable research infrastructure, especially for larger multi-center and multi-disciplinary collaborations.
Dr. Jupiter greatly influenced so many patients and physicians in Boston and around the world. This generous gift will ensure that his work will continue to leave a lasting legacy well into the future.
The high quality of the research and presentations of our fellows made it difficult for the program committee to select the award winners. Nonetheless, our hearty congratulations go out to the following fellows along with their respective coauthors and institutions:
