Bradford Hill Medal

The Bradford Hill Medal was established in memory of the distinguished epidemiologist and statistician Sir Austin Bradford Hill FRS (1897–1991) and is awarded to a Fellow for outstanding or influential contributions to the development, application or exposition of medical statistics.

2024 recipient: Mahesh (Max) Parmar
Max has collaborated with clinicians to design, conduct and analyse a wide range of high quality and clinically influential cancer trials, which have changed practice through incorporation in multiple clinical guidelines worldwide.

2021 recipient: Bianca de Stavola
Awarded for her innovative development of methods for analysing longitudinal epidemiological datasets and for her work in applying causal analysis in medical statistics. In both of these fields she has been prominent in teaching and encouraging others in their use and in particular, her work in causal analysis has served as a bridge between modelling.

The Guy Medal in Silver, the Bradford Hill Medal and the Howard Medal are intended for achievements of similar standards, subject to the different descriptions and requirements of the awards. The Honours Committee has the freedom to consider nominees for one of these medals for either of the other two if they satisfy the necessary specific criteria. 

The Bradford Hill medal will next be awarded in 2027*.

*If in any year a suitable candidate is not nominated, the award may be made the following year.
