AEG Raine Award

The Raine Award was established in memory of Tony Raine, Professor of Renal Medicine at Barts, following his tragically early death in 1995. This prestigious annual award is made to a relatively junior investigator (usually 35 years of age or less) who has made a significant contribution to renal research. The awardee usually makes a presentation of the work which has led up to the award at a Renal Association Conference.
