Member Spotlight
Awards & Honors

The ASIP Awards Program was founded in 1919 when the ASIP (then the American Association of Pathologists and Bacteriologists) awarded the very first Gold-Headed Cane Award to Dr. Harold C. Ernst in recognition of long-term contributions to pathology, including meritorious research, outstanding teaching, general excellence in the field, and leadership in pathology. Since then the program has expanded and currently offers Meritorious Awards, Junior Faculty Scholar Awards, and Trainee Scholar Awards to recognize outstanding achievements by ASIP members in every membership category and every career stage. Trainee Scholar Awards (for undergraduates, predoctoral students, and post-doctoral fellows) and Junior Faculty Scholar Awards are selected competitively based on abstract submissions to the ASIP scientific meetings. Meritorious Awardees are selected by the ASIP Meritorious Awards Committee.

Women in Pathology

The mission of Women in Pathology is to advance the professional and personal development of women in pathobiology research and pathology-related careers. Women in Pathology advocates for equity at research and healthcare institutions and endorses efforts to reduce barriers and maintain work-life balance experienced by women in science (particularly pathology) who work in academic science, government research, biomedical industry or biotech, or other settings.
