Nephro Pathology Jacob Churg Award Winner

The role of nephro pathologist in the teaching of our fellows in training is very critical. A nephrologist without pathology knowledge is incomplete. ASN has had past presidents who have been renal pathologists. It shows the major importance of such individuals in the field of nephrology.

            Every year, the renal pathology society awards a special individual the Jacob Churg Award and I was so excited to hear that this year’s award went to Dr Surya Seshan from Weill Cornell Medical Center. The reasons for my excitement are multiple fold:- She was my guru in pathology component of my nephrology training days; she is truly an excellent pathologist and a good mentor. 

            Please have a look at this amazing review by D’Agati in AJKD on the rise of pathology in nephrology. As we enter a new era in glomerular diseases, the role of the renal pathologist is strengthened in nephrology.
