The 2018 Carl W. Gottschalk Distinguished Lectureship of the APS Renal Section ($1000 honorarium, reimbursement for up to $1500 in travel expenses, plus a complimentary ticket to the Renal Dinner) recognizes a world-renown, distinguished scientist who has made major contributions to understanding physiological processes through state-of-the-art research, and who is an engaging speaker. The candidate’s area(s) of research expertise need not be in renal physiology, but should be of interest to Renal Section members.  The candidate need not be an APS member or a US citizen.

In addition to delivering the Carl W. Gottschalk Distinguished Lecture, the recipient will participate in the Renal Section’s Posters and Professors Reception and will be recognized at the Renal Dinner held during EB 2018. The awardee will be invited and strongly encouraged to write a Review which will be published in AJP-Renal Physiology.  Nominators must upload a 1 page summary of the candidate's contributions relevant to renal physiology. A copy of the nominee's CV must also be uploaded.
 

Nomination materials must be submitted no later than February 25, 2017.
 


The 2017 Robert W. Berliner Award for Excellence in Renal Physiology ($1000, reimbursement for up to $1500 in travel expenses, plus a complimentary ticket to the Renal Dinner) is the most prestigious award of the APS Renal Section. The award recognizes distinguished lifetime achievement in renal physiological research by a living scientist. Candidates must be at least 60 years of age, and must have been a major contributor to the field of renal physiology over a lifetime, including accomplishments in research, teaching, training and activities within the APS. The recipient will be honored at the 2017 Renal Dinner, and will participate in the Renal Section’s Posters and Professors Reception at EB2017. The awardee will be invited and strongly encouraged to write a Review which will be published in AJP-Renal Physiology.  Nomination materials consist of the candidate’s curriculum vitae and a nomination letter summarizing the candidate’s qualifications.


Nomination materials must be submitted no later than November 19, 2016.


The Renal Section Postdoctoral Excellence in Research Awards recognize postdoctoral fellows who are first author on an abstract presented at the EB2017 meeting involving renal-based research. Applicants may not have won this award in previous years.  Applicants cannot apply for a Research Recognition Award in the same round of applications. Applicants must submit and upload a copy of a first authored EB2017 abstract to be considered for this award. Finalists will be notified prior to the EB meeting and will be judged during the Renal Section’s Posters and Professors Reception at the meeting. Awardees are recognized at the 2017 Renal Dinner. Each awardee will be invited to submit a mini-review for AJP-Renal Physiology with the senior author on their EB2017 abstract.  Mini-reviews are to be on a topic related to their abstract, with fewer than 1500 words and no more than 1 figure.


All application materials must be completed online by November 19, 2016.


The 2017 Renal Section New Investigator Award ($1,000, reimbursement of the advance registration fee) recognizes an outstanding investigator in the early stages of his/her career. Candidates should be investigators who have made meritorious contributions to the areas of research represented by the Renal Section. They should not be above the rank of Assistant Professor or a comparable position in a research track at an academic institution or in industry (e.g. Scientist, Sr. Scientist, Research Investigator, etc.). They should receive nominations from at least two regular members of the APS. Candidates will be judged on their publications, how the publications relate to the Renal Section and evidence for independence and promise (grant funding, peer review activities, etc.). Although this is not an abstract-based award, awardees are expected to attend EB and make an oral or poster presentation. The candidate must be an APS member in good standing with a primary affiliation to the Renal Section to be considered for this award. The awardee will be invited and strongly encouraged to write a Review which will be published in AJP-Renal Physiology.  Candidates must upload: curriculum vitae, 2 nomination letters from APS members, and 3 reprints. Awardees must attend the Experimental Biology meeting in order to collect the cash prize and are recognized at the EB 2017 Renal Dinner.


All application materials must be completed online by November 19, 2016.
 


The Renal Section Predoctoral Excellence in Renal Research Awards recognize pre-doctoral students who are first author on an abstract presented at Experimental Biology 2017 involving renal-based research. Applicants may not have won this award in previous years. Applicants must submit and upload a copy of a first authored EB2017 abstract to be considered for this award. Finalists will be notified prior to the EB meeting and will be judged during the Renal Section’s Posters and Professor's Reception at the meeting. Awardees are recognized at the 2017 Renal Dinner. Each awardee will be invited to submit a mini-review for AJP-Renal Physiology with the senior author on their EB2017 abstract.  Mini-reviews are to be on a topic related to their abstract, with fewer than 1500 words and no more than 1 figure.

All application materials must be completed online by November 19, 2016.


The Renal Section Research Recognition Awards ($500 plus reimbursement of the advance registration fee) recognize the meritorious research by young investigators (junior faculty) who participate in the Experimental Biology Meeting. Up to four awards are given. Applicants should not be above the rank of Assistant Professor or a comparable position in a research track at an academic institution or in industry (e.g. Scientist, sre. Scientist, Research Investigator, etc.), and may not have won this award in previous years. Applicants cannot apply for a Postdoctoral Excellence in Research Award in the same round of applications. Candidates must be an author on an abstract submitted to a Renal Section associated topic at the EB meeting. Membership in the APS is not required, but awardees will be encouraged to join if they are not members. Applicants must upload a copy of the submitted abstract and the candidate's CV.
