PSI makes two awards each year to practicing statisticians and elects honorary members on an occasional basis.We also work with universities to recognise excellent students of statistics.
The PSI/RSS Award for statistics in the pharmaceutical industry
Since 2011, PSI and the Royal Statistical Society have awarded a prize each year for the most influential example of the application of an existing statistical practice, or the implementation of an innovative statistical practice, in the pharmaceutical
industry. Further details are available via our Statistical Excellence in the Pharmaceutical Industry Award page, or on the RSS website.
The Mick Godley Award
PSI relies on volunteers to organise and run all of its activities. Since 2003 the Board of Directors have recognised the unsung heroes of PSI through the annual Mick Godley Award. The late Mick Godley was an Honorary Member of PSI and he will always
be remembered for his enthusiasm for, and commitment to, the health and growth of PSI as an organisation. Along with this recognition, each recipient wins a free place at an annual PSI Conference.
Rising Star Award
The Rising Star Award was introduced in 2023 to recognise those volunteers early in their careers (<10 years pharma experience) who were making an impact in PSI. The “ones to watch” in the PSI space, the award aims to congratulate and encourage them to continue their involvement with the organisation. Along with this recognition, each recipient wins a free one-day pass at the next annual PSI conference, with the aim of sharing their contributions to date and inspiring the next generation in their PSI journey.
The society occasionally recognises long and outstanding contributions to the society by awarding honorary membership. It is the highest award PSI can bestow and recognises outstanding service on behalf of PSI and its membership sustained over
