Michael J. Mihatsch & Dusan Ferluga Award

Nomination procedure

In 2010, the “Michael J. Mihatsch and Dusan Ferluga Research Award” was founded jointly by the “Renal Pathology Society” and the “European Society of Pathology – Nephropathology Working Group”, in recognition of their contributions to renal research. The “Michael J. Mihatsch and Dusan Ferluga Research Award” was established to encourage excellence in the area of renal pathology research by younger investigators (<40 years of age). The recipients will be selected on the basis of the quality of her/his abstract(s) submitted to the ECP. Awards of €500 will be presented at the ECP, together with a certificate. The first authors of each, one abstract dealing with renal transplant pathology and one dealing with native kidney pathology, will be awarded.

The abstract review committee of the ECP will nominate at least four abstracts in each category (native kidney disease and renal transplant pathology) accepted for oral presentation at the ECP. The prize winners will then be selected by Dusan Ferluga and Michael J. Mihatsch.
