ANIO Award of Academic Excellence

The ANIO Award recognizes individuals of Indian origin who have made substantial and significant contributions to the science of nephrology in basic or clinical science supported by published work in scientific journals.

The overall purpose of ANIO is to bring together like-minded nephrologists, nephrology trainees and health care professionals in the field of nephrology who have their origins in the Indian subcontinent and/or those who have worked in areas related to the Indian subcontinent. While the group is principally drawn from the United States, ANIO seeks to have a broader reach and would aim to draw membership from other parts of the world.
