Di Carlo Distinguished Service Award, or the Distinguished Accomplishments in Drug Discovery and Development Award to be Presented at the 12th International ISSX Meeting in Portland, Oregon from July 28 - August 1, 2019.


R.T. Williams Distinguished Scientific Achievement Award - Sponsored by Charles Crespi and Family.  Presented to an ISSX 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. 


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.

Distinguished Accomplishments in Drug Discovery and Development Award - Presented to an individual or to a team employed in an organization involved in drug discovery and/or development. The award will be presented to an individual or team on the basis of:
