ASCEPT Achievement Award

[eyesonly logged=”in”]Nominations (not applications, you can’t put your own hand up) for the ASCEPT Achievement Award (for outstanding service to Australasian pharmacology or toxicology). Nominees can be at any career stage (young or less young, working or retired), but have made a significant (beyond-the-call of-duty) contribution to the society itself or to the disciplines of pharmacology or toxicology.

Each nominee should be nominated and seconded by two ASCEPT members, rather than individuals applying. Please include in the nomination a summary statement illustrating why you think this person should be recognised by ASCEPT in this way, a brief CV of the nominee, and of course an indication that the nominee is willing to be nominated.

The ASCEPT Executive will select the successful candidate from the nominees, and they will be awarded a plaque.

The medal is awarded in each odd year.

Nomination requirements
The nominee must have made substantial scientific or service contributions to Australasian Pharmacology, Clinical Pharmacology, Toxicology or Clinical Toxicology, over a sustained period (i.e. >7 years). The nominee must have shown leadership in the advancement and promotion in one of the disciplines of Pharmacology, Clinical Pharmacology, Toxicology and Clinical Toxicology and must be a member of ASCEPT. Previous winners are ineligible for a period of 7 years after receiving the award. Candidates must be nominated and seconded by 2 ASCEPT members, with at least one from outside the nominee’s institution.

Judgement criteria
The award is made on the basis of the quality of the candidate’s published work and a supporting statement from the nominators. These will be judged by a special Award Committee appointed by the Executive of ASCEPT.

Submission deadline
Submissions for 2016 close on 24 June.

1. A one page (A4) statement giving details of the relevant contributions the nominee has
made to Pharmacology, Clinical Pharmacology, Toxicology or Clinical Toxicology, and
giving reasons why the nominee should receive this award.
2. A full curriculum vitae of the candidate.
3. If appropriate, copies of up to 4 papers considered by the proposer or the nominee to
be particularly significant contributions. Nominations may stand for 3 years.
