Women in Pathology Meritorious Awards

WiP Meritorious Awards

The leadership of the Women in Pathology in conjunction with the ASIP Council has established two new meritorious awards to recognize individuals who have made exceptional contributions to the advancement of women within the ASIP, at their own institutions, and across the field of experimental pathology. 

Nomination packages for these awards will be reviewed by the Meritorious Awards Committee annually and awardees will be selected. Awardees will be recognized at the Annual Meeting and will deliver a presentation related to the advancement of women in science during an appropriate Women in Pathology event.

Awardees will receive a commemorative etched glass award and a monetary prize.
