Congratulations

Dr Mignon McCulloch has been awarded the Roscoe Robinson award from the International Society of Nephrology for her contributions to paediatric nephrology globally. She will be presented with this award at the World Congress of Nephrology in Mexico later this year. This is one of the most prestigious awards in nephrology (adult and paediatrics) - it is extraordinary for someone to get this award at this stage of their career, so a huge accolade for Mignon and the work that she has done.
