  • Renal Pathology Society

The Renal Pathology Society (RPS) is a non-profit global association of more than 500 renal pathologists committed to improvement and dissemination of knowledge regarding the pathology and pathophysiology of renal disease, promoting excellence in diagnosis and fostering basic, clinical and translational research.
In order to meet the growing demand for state-of-the-art nephropathology among clinical and basic scientists, the Renal Pathology Society (RPS) has launched the Research Collaborator Program.
Scientists can submit their request for collaboration to the RPS. Requests will be vetted through by the RPS' Research and Scientifc Committee (RSC). Depending on the project's requirements, the RSC will suggest one or several RPS members with a special interest in the proposed project as Collaborators to provide help in all aspects of tissue analysis. The research project will then be conducted by the scientists and the RPS Research Collaborators. All publications based on this collaboration are expected to acknowledge the Research Collaborator Program.
