ASIP Young Scientist Leadership Award

About ASIP
The mission of the Society is to promote the discovery, advancement, and dissemination of basic and translational knowledge in experimental pathology and related disciplines. This shall be achieved by fostering investigation into the pathogenesis, classification, diagnosis, and manifestations of disease through meetings, publications, and educational activities.

The American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP) is a society of biomedical scientists who investigate mechanisms of disease. Investigative pathology is an integrative discipline that links the presentation of disease in the whole organism to its fundamental cellular and molecular mechanisms. Investigative pathology uses a variety of structural, functional, and genetic techniques and ultimately applies research findings to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. ASIP advocates for the practice of investigative pathology and fosters the professional career development and education of its members.

ASIP is a member of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), a coalition of 27 independent societies that plays an active role in lobbying for the interests of over 100,000 biomedical scientists.

Abraham David Sobel - ASIP Education Fund

Abraham David Sobel was born on September 29, 1909 and died on his 98th birthday. Mark Sobel, ASIP's Executive Officer, has established the Abraham David Sobel-ASIP Education Fund to perpetuate his father's lifelong interest in supporting education and training for young scientists. The Fund is used to support education and mentorship of trainee members of the ASIP.

ASIP Young Scientist Leadership Award (formerly the Excellence in Science Award)

To date, 97 individuals and 7 institutions/organizations have contributed over $63,000 to the A.D. Sobel - ASIP Education Fund. Funds have supported trainee travel to attend the ASIP Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology, the Italian Society of Pathology (SIP) Congress (SIP is an affiliate of ASIP), the ASIP Summer Academy, and the Marcos Rojkind-ASIP Trainee Travel Award. The Fund also supports the newly established ASIP Young Scientist Leadership Award (formerly the ASIP Excellence in Science Award), which recognizes outstanding achievements at the earliest stages of a career in biomedical research with an emphasis on volunteerism.
