The Benjamin Castleman Award is granted for an outstanding paper in the field of human pathology published in English. Selections made by the Benjamin Castleman Award Committee will be based on the merit of the submitted paper, not on the entire career of the author. Please do not include additional supporting papers. Any optional information or letters from sponsors should be focused on the paper, not on the author’s qualifications. The 2023 award will be based on papers published during the twelve months preceding the application deadline. The subject may represent any topic in pathology, but must be directly relevant to human disease. On papers with multiple authors, only one author is eligible, and only one paper per author may be submitted.
The awardee must be a pathologist or a pathology resident or fellow who has not yet reached their 40th birthday at the time the paper is published. Papers by pathology trainees are encouraged. The prize will consist of a check for $1,500 and a certificate. Funds for travel are not included and the awardee does not have to be present at the Annual Meeting.
