Two Awards May be Given at Each Regional ISSX Meeting:

Regional Scientific Achievement Awards - Presented to an ISSX member who has made major scientific contributions to the field within a specific geographical region (Europe, Asia Pacific and North America).  The frequency of the award will vary according to the regional meetings schedule.  The purpose of this award is to recognize meritorious contributions by senior or mid-career scientists that have had a major impact on research in the field.  The award will consist of a plaque or medal, an honorarium, and travel support to an ISSX regional meeting where a lecture will be presented.

  • The North American Scientific Achievement Award is named in Honor of Ronald W. Estabrook and was sponsored by XenoTech.  This award is presented to an ISSX member who has made major scientific contributions to the field within the North American Region.

Regional New Investigator Awards - Presented to ISSX members who have made significant contributions to the field during their early career years (normally within 5 -10 years from the time of receiving his/her highest earned degree).  The purpose of these awards is to encourage and recognize developing scientists who are active in the field within a specific geographical region (Europe, Asia Pacific, and North America).  Each award will consist of a plaque or medal, an honorarium, and travel support to an ISSX meeting.  The frequency of the award will vary according to the regional meetings schedule. 

  • The North American New Investigator Award is named in honor of James R. Gillette.  It is presented to an ISSX member who has made significant contributions to the field within the North American Region.

  • The European New Investigator Award is named in honor of Karl J. Netter and was started with an initial donation from the European Society for Biochemical Pharmacology (ESBP). It is presented to an ISSX member who has made significant contributions to the field within the European Region.

Two Awards May be Given at Each International ISSX Meeting:

The R.T. Williams Distinguished Scientific Achievement Award - Sponsored by Charles Crespi and Family.  Presented to an ISSX member or non-member from any region who has made substantial and seminal scientific contributions to the field over a sustained period. The focus of this award is the individual's scientific accomplishments and it is intended to recognize the best in the field, internationally.  The award will consist of a plaque/medal, an honorarium and travel support, and will be presented along with a lecture once every three years in conjunction with the Society's International Meeting.

The Frederick J. Di Carlo Distinguished Service Award - Presented to an ISSX member from any region who has a record of important service to the Society and its goals.  The award will consist of a plaque or medal, honorarium and travel support and will normally be presented in conjunction with the appropriate international meeting.  On occasion, one or two outstanding acts of service will justify the award or a long record of many acts of service without any single outstanding act will be recognized.  Preferably, however, the recipient should have a record of many accomplishments some of which are major.  The award will not be given for future promise, but on the basis of past service.  The President-Elect and President of ISSX will be ineligible for the award for five (5) years after their term of office.
