Award for Statistical Excellence in the Pharmaceutical Industry

The deadline for this year’s award has now passed. The winners will be announced in June.

The award for statistical excellence in the pharmaceutical industry is made jointly with Statisticians in the Pharmaceutical Industry (PSI) every year.

The aim of the award is to recognise pieces of work which demonstrate 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.

  • 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
