The Paul R. Dawson Award consists of a glass sculpture and a $5,000 prize, and is endowed by Amgen in honor of its former Vice President of Marketing and Sales Paul R. Dawson, a staunch supporter of education in biotechnology. The award was originally focused specifically on the teaching and scholarship of biotechnology, science that promised to revolutionize health and health services. Beginning in 2015, the Paul R. Dawson Award criteria are expanded to include all research that has made sustained contributions to changes in the quality of patient outcomes. The intent of the award is to recognize annually an active scientist within the ranks of pharmacy education as one of the leaders in the broad range of research related to health services delivery affecting patient outcomes, including clinical, translational and health services research.
Any AACP member may submit nominations for this award by completing the online submission form no later than Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2015 at 11:59 p.m. PST, identified with the appropriate award title. Please contact Melinda D. Colón, director of governance programs and meetings, with any questions.
The award winners will be announced by the AACP Board of Directors in spring 2016, and published in Academic Pharmacy Now and on the Web site. They will also be honored during the 2016 Annual Meeting in Anaheim, California.
