Gloria Gallo Award
Gloria Gallo Research Award
In 2009, a new RPS award to honor Gloria Gallo's contributions to the field of renal pathology and her role in the RPS and KUFA was sponsored jointly by KUFA and RPS. The award will be presented annually at the ASN-RPS business meeting (or the following USCAP if the awardee is not present at the ASN). Call for nominations will be announced in mid-September and close about 2-3 weeks prior to the meeting. The award will be presented by the chair of the Nominations and Awards Committee at the RPS business meeting held at the annual ASN meeting. The KUFA leadership will be invited to attend the presentation of the award. A minimal of 3 nominations should be received for consideration of the award.
Once the nomination deadline is met, the Chair of the Nominations and Awards Committee will share all the nominations with the abstract submissions with the Chair of the Research Committee.
Following evaluations from both the Chairs and their committee members, the Chair of the Nominations and Awards Committee will collate the results and announce the winner.
