ASIP Mourns the Loss of Past President Nelson Fausto
Nelson Fausto, MD, a visionary leader of ASIP for two decades, died today after a long struggle with multiple myeloma. In an illustrious multi-faceted career, Nelson made many significant contributions to ASIP. Perhaps he is best known for his stewardship of The American Journal of Pathology (AJP). He was the first Editor-in-Chief (1992-2000) of the Journal after the ASIP took over full ownership and became its publisher in 1992. He was recognized by the Society as the first recipient of the ASIP-Chugai Mentoring Award in 2000; he was the elected President of ASIP (2004-2005); and he was awarded the Gold-Headed Cane, the Societyâ€™s highest honor, in 2010. In addition to his volunteer service to ASIP, he was a generous donor to the ASIP Pathology Leadership Fund. Please see the touching and comprehensive announcement from Thomas J. Montine, Interim Chair of Pathology at the University of Washington for more details.
