Dr. Ranjan Gupta, professor and chair of UCI’s Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, has been selected by the American Orthopaedic Association for the 2013 American-British-Canadian Traveling Fellowship. The ABC Fellowship – the oldest provided by the American Orthopaedic Association – is a prestigious, highly competitive and sought-after honor awarded to leaders in the field of orthopedic surgery. ABC Fellows are chosen every two years and travel to various academic institutions in the United Kingdom and South Africa. They present their research and act as international ambassadors for the AOA as they learn about healthcare and research in their host countries. Gupta is the first UCI faculty member to be named an ABC Fellow. He has received numerous awards, including the National Institutes of Health’s Career Development Award from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders & Stroke (2000), the Marshall R. Urist Young Investigator Award from the Association of Bone & Joint Surgeons (2005), the Kappa Delta Award from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons/Orthopaedic Research Society (2006) and the Sterling Bunnell Traveling Fellowship from the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (2007).
