Albert Renold Prize

Prize for outstanding achievements in research on the islets of Langerhans.

Members of the EASD are invited to submit nominations for the Albert Renold Prize for outstanding achievement in research on the islets of Langerhans. The Prize Lecture will be delivered during the EASD Annual Meeting in the year of the award. The Albert Renold Prize is generously sponsored by Lilly.

There are no restrictions regarding the age of the candidate who also may come from any part of the world. The aim of the Lectureship is to recognise an individual's outstanding contributions to the advancement of knowledge in the field of islet studies.

Nominations should be made on the nomination form containing a letter of recommendation of not more than 1000 words that may be signed by one or more nominators. Additional letters will be disregarded. The letter of nomination should be accompanied by a curriculum vitae of the nominee with complete bibliography and a list (without reprints) of ten publications considered to reflect the nominee's most important contributions in the field.
