Steven B. Leder Award

The Steven B. Leder Award was created by the Dysphagia Research Society (DRS) to highlight clinically relevant research. This award honors Steve Leder, a prolific evidence-based clinical researcher, a dedicated clinician, and past-president of the DRS.

The award and a $1,000.00 prize will be given yearly to the first author of a manuscript in "Dysphagia" in which clinical relevance is highlighted.



  • Membership within (full, associate or training) and in good standing of the Dysphagia Research Society.
  • First author of a manuscript published in "Dysphagia" during the previous year.
  • Each awardee can only receive these funds one time.

Applications will be judged based on the following:

  • Study of clinical population.
  • High scientific rigor,
  • Impact on clinical care,
  • Additional value outside of the study population,
  • Increased understanding of swallowing disorders.

The Steven B. Leder Award application has now closed. Please contact the DRS office at (not .com) if you have any additional questions.
