Nominations are currently being accepted for the ANIO Awards for Academic Excellence and Outstanding Community Service.
The Academic Excellence award recognizes individuals of Indian origin who have made substantial and significant contributions to the science of nephrology in basic or clinical science supported by published work in scientific journals. The recipient preferably should be of Indian ancestry and can be based in North America or elsewhere. The selection committee rarely may decide to give the award to someone not of Indian ancestry, whose contribution may be of special significance to the Indian diaspora with regard to disease manifestations, mechanisms or treatment.
