Tribute to Professor J. Stewart Cameron (1934-2023)

The Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Professor J. Stewart Cameron CBE. 

Professor Cameron was a hugely valued member of the RSM's Nephrology Section. He championed nephrology trainees in their pursuit of excellence via the Stewart Cameron Science Award, which is awarded annually to the best clinical or basic science project presented at the RSM Nephrology President's Prize Day. 

Professor Cameron was Emeritus Professor of Nephrology at Guy's Hospital, London, where he did his medical training and spent most of his career. A pioneering nephrologist, he was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 1998 New Year Honours, 'For services to Nephrology', and was elected a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (FRCP). He had also been President of the UK Renal Association, the European Renal Association, the European Society for Paediatric Nephrology, and the International Society of Nephrology. 

His achievements reflect his extraordinary abilities as a physician, researcher, clinical lead, and educator. We remember his wonderful support and mentorship for nephrology trainees through the Stewart Cameron Science Award. His legacy will continue to inspire generations in the fields of adult and paediatric kidney medicine.
