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 who has not reached consultant grade or senior lecturer for non-clinical scientists and 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 and will also receive a full article-processing charge waiver to publish one article in BMC Nephrology, where they are listed as an author, and their authorship fulfills ICMJE authorship criteria. The prize is valid for one year, and publication of the manuscript is subject to editorial assessment and peer-review.

Walls Bursaries

These bursaries were established in memory of the late Professor John Walls, President of the Renal Association 1995-1998, who died in 2001. Their aim is to help Renal Association members to spend short periods (e.g. weeks or months) at other centres, generally outside the UK, to learn new laboratory techniques or gain new clinical skills.

Two bursaries are usually available each year, one for a clinician and one for a non-clinician. Applicants should have made a significant contribution to the field of Academic Nephrology and the award can only be made once to any one individual. £1,000 is awarded to help Renal Association members to present work visit an overseas laboratory or clinical Nephrology unit (often these will be collaborating centres).

Submissions may be made between May 1st and August 31st each year. Decisions will usually be made by the end of September. Late applications will NOT be accepted.

Applications should be made as an email to the Renal Association Secretariat. Applicants must include in the application:

  • A statement that he/she is a current member of the Renal Association
  • A mini-CV of not more than two A4 sides, with an emphasis on academic achievements including a list of key original research publications, the date the applicant joined the Renal Association and current state of membership
  • Brief details of centres overseas to be visited
  • A supporting statement by the Head of the applicant’s UK Department.
  • Please provide the documents in PDF format. Successful recipients will be required to submit a brief report of approximately 500 words.
