The award for statistical excellence in the pharmaceutical industry is made jointly between Statisticians in the Pharmaceutical Industry (PSI) and the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) every year.
The aim of the award is to recognise an outstanding level of influence in the application of an existing statistical practice, or an innovation, that has strengthened the quality and efficiency of investigations in the pharmaceutical industry.
Entries must demonstrate one or more of the following:
- A clear understanding of the needs of researchers and investigators
- An application of an existing statistical practice to a new area that has increased the quality and efficiency of investigations
- A new development in the design of investigations and/or the analysis of data that has led to further insights into the safety, efficacy and value of medicines or devices
- An excellent way to communicate results that is clear and helpful to a wide array of users, showing how statisticians understand the range of user needs.
Nominees can be based anywhere in the world and do not need to be a member of PSI or the RSS. The award will be presented at the PSI AGM in July. Download the entry form here.
The deadline for entries is midnight on Tuesday 27 April 2021.
