Support ASIP Career and Educational Initiatives for Young Investigators...
ASIP's mission is to provide our young experimental pathologists with challenging educational and professional career development initiatives focused on new discoveries in pathogenesis and its ultimate influence on disease prevention and health care. Your gifts go a long way toward providing opportunities for our youngest ASIP members!
ASIP Centennial Fund
In 2013, the American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP) will celebrate the centennial of the formation of one of its two predecessor societies, the American Society for Experimental Pathology (ASEP). ASEP was formed in 1913 to provide a pathology arm to the newly established FASEB, and is the reason that we have been holding joint annual meetings with our sister FASEB societies since that time (currently Experimental Biology). In the 1970s, the ASEP merged with the American Association of Pathologists and Bacteriologists (formed in 1900) to become the American Association of Pathologists, which in 1992 was re-incorporated as the American Society for Investigative Pathology.
Centennial observances will include a special reception during Experimental Biology 2013 in Boston, the publication of a historical archive of major scientific accomplishments of the membership, and a Journal Centennial program with special features in issues of The American Journal of Pathology. The Centennial Fund has been established to support these programs. ASIP is a non-profit educational 501(c)(3) organization. Your contribution to the Centennial Fund is tax-deductible under current IRS regulations. Please consult your tax accountant for deductibility.
A.D. Sobel -ASIP Education Fund
Mark Sobel, ASIP's Executive Officer, established the Abraham David Sobel-ASIP Education Fund to perpetuate his late father's lifelong interest in supporting education and training for young scientists. Funds will be used to support education and mentorship of trainee members of the ASIP. To date, over 70 individuals have contributed nearly $40,000 to the Abraham David Sobel-ASIP Education Fund. In 2012, the fund will sponsor A.D. Sobel - ASIP Education Fund Scholar Awards for trainees to attend the ASIP Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology, and the 30th National Congress of the Societá Italiana di Patalogia. In addition, the fund supports the ASIP Excellence in Science Award which recognizes outstanding achievements at the earliest stages of a career in biomedical research.
Pathology Leadership Fund
The PLF supports symposia and workshops at the ASIP annual meetings, trainee travel awards, educational initiatives, and merit awards. The PLF fund was established in 2004 by the leadership of ASIP. To date, ASIP members have contributed over $70,000 to this fund. Join with your distinguished colleagues today by making a contribution to the PLF today.
