Established by an anonymous donor in 2008, the Enid Gilbert Barness prize honors the achievements and contributions of Society for Pediatric Pathology past-president and life member, Dr. Enid Gilbert Barness, to children’s healthcare and to our specialty. The award is to recognize the impact of an outstanding pediatric pathology paper on anatomic pathology, clinical practice, research or public health, and to encourage excellence and relevance in pediatric pathology practice. Papers accepted or published in a peer review journal during the past three calendar years by members of the Society for Pediatric Pathology who are the first or last author and the primary contributor to the work are eligible. Members may nominate a colleague’s paper or submit their own work for consideration to the SPP Awards Committee by the deadline that is announced each year. The final selection will be made by a panel of nationally known clinicians, and the winner will be announced at the Annual Meeting.
The winner will receive a plaque, $1000 cash award, and recognition in the Society Newsletter.
For 2011, please submit a copy of the paper as a .pdf file by Saturday, January 1, 2011, at 11:59 PST to:
