Nominations for the 2020 ISoP Awards are now open through 05/31/2020.
The International Society of Pharmacometrics seeks to recognize innovative science and outstanding leadership in the field of pharmacometrics and related scientific areas, with the following Awards categories. Please click on each ISoP Award for a more detailed description.
In addition, select ISoP members may be elevated to Fellow (FISoP) in recognition of their dedication and sustained support and service to the society. Please follow the link below for a more details on this distinction.
We encourage everyone to consider nominating worthy candidates in one or more award categories and for elevation to ISoP Fellow. More information on the ISoP Awards can be found at http://go-isop.org/awards/. Please note that current members of the ISoP Board of Directors and the Awards Committee are not eligible for any of these Awards or to be selected as an ISoP Fellow.
To submit a nomination, please read each Award and Fellow eligibility criteria closely then submit an appropriate documentation package to the ISoP Awards Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 05/31/2020 (31 May 2020).

1. Lewis B. Sheiner Lecturer Award
The purpose of the Lewis B. Sheiner Lecturer Award is to recognize the outstanding lifetime achievements of a distinguished scientist or researcher who has continued the legacy of excellence in pharmacometric research and leadership established by Lewis B. Sheiner. In particular, pharmacometric scientists or researchers involved in the application of the circle of excellence: Integration–Innovation–Impact  to enhance research, development, regulatory evaluation, and/or utilization of therapeutic products may be considered for this award.
2. ISoP Innovation Award
The purpose of the ISoP Innovation Award is to recognize an outstanding scientist or an exceptional team of scientists for novel, innovative, creative, and remarkable scientific, technical, and methodological contributions to the scientific field of pharmacometrics and related scientific areas.
3. ISoP Leadership Award
The purpose of the ISoP Leadership Award is to recognize an outstanding individual (not necessarily a scientist) for outstanding sustained leadership, mentorship, and outreach contributions to the field of pharmacometrics and to the development of the strategic vision for the future direction of the field and its application of the circle of excellence: Integration–Innovation–Impact  to enhance research, development, regulatory evaluation and/or utilization of therapeutic products.
4. ISoP Outstanding Research Manuscript Award.
The purpose of the ISoP Outstanding Research Manuscript Award is to recognize the authors of a particularly outstanding manuscript published in format of a scientific publication in any of a variety of quality peer-reviewed journals. The latter can be theoretical or applied to the fields of pharmacometrics, statistics, systems-based modeling and simulation, or any related scientific fields.
5. ISoP Emerging Scientist Award
The purpose of the ISoP Emerging Scientist Award is to highlight the extraordinary professional efforts of an ISoP member who, while within 5 years of a first professional appointment, has made a significant impact in some aspects of the fields of pharmacometrics, applied statistics, systems-based modeling and simulation, or any related scientific field.
6. ISoP Unsung Hero Award
The purpose of the ISoP Unsung Hero Award is to recognize noteworthy candidate(s) who are ISoP members and have demonstrated significant dedication, commitment, and contributions (of any kind) to the effective operations of ISoP. There is no limit established on the number of ISoP Unsung Hero Awards to be awarded each year (i.e., can be more than one or none).
Induction of ISoP Fellows (FISoP)
The purpose of ISoP Fellowships are to recognize scientists for their professional excellence and superior impact in pharmacometrics, and for their substantial volunteering work for ISoP. The professional distinction of ISoP Fellow was established in 2014. Annually, ISoP elevates select ISoP members to Fellow in recognition of their dedication and sustained support and service to the society. There is no limit established on the number of ISoP Fellows to be inducted every year (i.e., can be more than one or none).
