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.

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

To date, over 100 individuals and 7 institutions/organizations have contributed over $75,000 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 and Translational Medicine (SIPMeT) National Congress, the ASIP Summer Academy, and the first three Marcos Rojkind-ASIP Trainee Travel Awards. (Effective 2015, a separate fund, largely supported by Satdarshan Paul S. Monga will support excellence in liver pathobiology trainee research.) The Fund also supports the ASIP Young Scientist Leadership Award, which recognizes trainee volunteer service to ASIP and outstanding research achievements at the earliest stages of a career in biomedical research. In 2015, the A. D. Sobel-ASIP Education Fund is also funding the Continuing Medical Education component of the ASIP Annual Meeting.
