Pharmaceutical industry award launched for 2022

Nominations are being sought for the 2022 Award for Statistical Excellence in the Pharmaceutical Industry, presented jointly by the RSS and Statisticians in the Pharmaceutical Industry (PSI).  

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 should demonstrate clear communication of results that is accessible to a wide range of users.  

Last year’s winner was Dr Lisa Hampson (pictured above), the director of statistical methodology at Novartis. Her entry, 'Improving the assessment of the probability of success in drug development: A holistic framework encompassing statistical significance, regulatory approval, and market access' was considered by the judges to be an outstanding example of high-impact work within a large pharmaceutical setting.  

The award will be presented at the RSS’s annual conference, which will take place in Aberdeen, Scotland, 12-15 September.
