Camillo Golgi Prize

Prize for outstanding contributions in the field of the histopathology, pathogenesis, prevention and treatment of the complications of diabetes  mellitus.

Camillo Golgi was awarded the Noble Prize in 1906 for his studies on the nervous system and kidney physiology.

The EASD Camillo Golgi Prize is awarded for outstanding contributions in the field of the histopathology, pathogenesis, prevention and treatment of the complications of diabetes mellitus, which have been carried out in Europe by a member of EASD normally resident in Europe. The Camillo Golgi Prize is generously sponsored by Novo Nordisk.

The awardee delivers a lecture named in honour of Camillo Golgi at the EASD Annual Meeting in the year of the award.

Nominations or re-nominations should me made on the nomination form and sent electronically as one complete pdf by any member of the EASD. It should comprise of each of the following:

  • Curriculum vitae
  • Letter(s) of recommendation
  • Re-prints of the eight most relevant publications emphasising recent contributions

Nominations for the Camillo Golgie Prize 2017 must be sent via email to to arrive no later than 15 February 2017.
