  1. 1. RPS Bylaws RPS Application Form Information for Members Awards Bestowed by the RPS Nephropathology Training Programs RPS Officers Presentations and Speakers at RPS Sponsored Scientific and Educational Sessions The most important tool of the Communication and Publications Committee of the Renal Pathology Society is the RPS web-site. The objective of the site is to facilitate communication between the members of the RPS, and between the RPS other societies. To this effect, the web-site includes the directory of members with data regarding their areas of research interest - "yellow pages". Collaborative studies and surveys are posted, to ensure continuous availability. Visit the web-site at http://www.renalpathsoc.org/ and learn more about the history of the society, the upcoming international meetings or courses, the opportunities available, the composition of the committees. The Committee is pleased to have available two further services: upon request, electronic messages can be disseminated to all the members (contact ssmith1@tulane.edu) and an electronic discussion group for renal pathology is available at NEPHNPT (contact Kim.Solez@ualberta.ca).

  6. 6. Renal Pathology Society Awards YOUNG INVESTIGATOR AWARD The Renal Pathology Society Young Investigator Award was established to recognize and encourage excellence in the area of renal pathology in accordance with the goals of the Society. The recipients of the award are selected from those nominated based on the contents of abstracts that they have submitted as first author to the annual meeting of the ASN or USCAP. The awards, in the amount of $500 (US), are presented at the ASN and USCAP Meetings. Candidates must be nominated by a member of the Renal Pathology Society. The RPS member does not need to be a co-author of the submitted abstract but, if not, he or she should be from the same institution as the nominee. The research must have been carried out, while the candidate was a trainee (e.g., medical student, resident, fellow, graduate student) and not a faculty member.
