ASN Awards

Deadlines and Criteria

In 2016, ASN is celebrating its 50th anniversary and plans to recognize all award recipients from the last half-century. Their contributions to both medicine and the nephrology community are remarkable and help us to continue to lead the fight against kidney diseases. ASN is committed to honoring the past as the society prepares for the future during this milestone year. As such, ASN will only present the ASN-AHA Young Investigator Award in 2016, due to its age-limited criterion.

The deadline to submit a nomination is Friday, January 29, 2016. Nomination letters should be emailed to ASN Manager of Governance and External Relations Laura McCann at

  • To nominate a candidate, please submit one letter of nomination and the nominee's curriculum vitae (CV). Please note that ASN can only accept one nomination letter per candidate, although the letter may have multiple signatories.
  • In 2016, ASN will NOT consider nominations submitted in 2015. If you wish to re-nominate a candidate from 2015, please submit a new nomination letter and an updated CV.
  • The ASN Strategic Plan establishes the goal to increase diversity—including age, experience, ethnicity, and gender - at all levels of the society, including ASN's awards.
