The Neustein Award was established in memory of Dr. Harry B. Neustein, pathologist and electron
microscopist at Los Angeles Children’s Hospital. Originally awarded to recognize meritorious
work involving electron microscopy in the study of disorders of children, the criteria have
been broadened to include in addition to ultrastructure, the application of new or novel
technology to the study of pediatric disease or developmental biology. The award is given to
the principal author of a platform or poster presentation at the spring and/or fall meeting
of the Society. The abstract subcommittee nominates meritorious papers for consideration; no
application is necessary.
The winner will receive an illuminated certificate, $500 cash award, and recognition in the Society Newsletter.
