Conference Awards

2 April 2019

The SASBCP has several awards graciously sponsored by Novartis that members may be eligible to win based on their research or contribution to pharmacology. The awards are subject to several guidelines and eligibility criteria, and adjudication is done through a peer-review process. In all cases, it is the applicants responsibility that their applications reach the society office prior to the deadline, and confirmation of receipt is ackowledged. The associated documentation can be found at each award description.

Should the society feel that too few applications are provided for a category, or the quality thereof is not high enough, the award will be held over to the next year. Should this be the case, applications will automatically be taken through to the next year's adjudication. 

Please make sure to send all applications to Ms Petunia Degashu ([email protected]) by the 30th of August.

The various awards presented are:
