Enid Gilbert Barness Prizea

The Enid Gilbert Barness Prize, established by an anonymous donor in 2008, honors the achievements and contributions of Dr. Enid Gilbert Barness, the past president and life member of Society for Pediatric Pathology, to children’s healthcare and to our specialty. The prize recognizes 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. The papers should be 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 to be eligible for the prize. Members may nominate a colleague’s paper or submit their work for consideration to the SPP Awards Committee by the deadline that is announced each year. A panel of nationally known clinicians makes the final selection, and the winner is announced at the Annual Meeting.

The winner receives a plaque, $1000 cash award, and recognition in the Society Newsletter.

For 2017, please submit a copy of the paper as a .pdf file by Friday, December 30, 2016, at 23:59 to:
