Marcos Rojkind - ASIP Trainee Travel Award

The Marcos Rojkind - ASIP Trainee Travel Award honors the memory of Dr. Marcos J. Marcos RojkindRojkind, a loyal member of ASIP for forty years. Educated in Mexico, Dr. Rojkind was the recipient in 1985 of Mexico's highest scientific honor, the National Service Award. He joined the faculty at George Washington University in 2002. Dr. Rojkind did seminal work in many aspects of hepatic pathobiology in areas of liver fibrosis, injury and stellate cell biology. He was passionate about teaching and trained many students and postdoctoral fellows.

After Dr. Rojkind's death in 2011, a special ASIP fund was established by Dr. Satdarshan (Paul) S. Monga to support travel to the ASIP Annual Meeting of an ASIP trainee member who submits an abstract that includes data relevant to studies in liver pathobiology. Candidates for the Marcos Rojkind - ASIP Trainee Travel Award should submit an application for the ASIP Trainee Travel Award and will be considered along with all other candidates for the ASIP Trainee Travel Award. The Marcos Rojkind - ASIP Trainee Travel Award is presented to the trainee who submits the best abstract in Liver Pathobiology, as judged by the Trainee Travel Award Review Committee.
