Leonard Share Award of the APS Water & Electrolyte Homeostasis Section

Contact: Michael J. Ryan, Ph.D. , mjryan@umc.edu – Chair of the WEH Section

Nomination Deadline: January 19, 2019

Dr. Leonard Share was responsible for recognizing WEH research as a sub-discipline with the APS, and for the subsequent formation of the WEH section in 1982.   The Leonard Share Award was established in 2015 to recognize a WEH member that has contributed their time and talents to our section as well as to APS.  The member cannot have served as President of APS, but most likely has served in many other capacities and is one of our "unsung heroes".  The Awardee will also have a well-recognized research program that has contributed to the knowledge of WEH research.  The Awardee will be announced at the WEH Section Luncheon and Business meeting and will receive $1000, and a custom-designed WEH section plaque.

Require Materials:
Nominations for the Leonard Share Award are solicited from the WEH membership, and evaluated by a selection committee composed of senior WEH members.  A nomination letter which describes the nominee's accomplishments and the nominee's CV are required materials.
