The Awards Committee of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine invites members of the Society to submit the names of potential nominees for the awards of the Society. The Awards Committee will recommend the names of potential Award winners to the Board of Trustees based on proposals received from the membership and its own suggestions.  Awards will be bestowed at the ISMRM 28th Annual Meeting & Exhibition to be held 18-23 April 2020 in Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Please note, nominations are only accepted online. Access provided below.

Gold Medal

This medal is awarded to recognize a major research contribution to the field of magnetic resonance within the scope of the Society. Proposals must include a statement of nomination detailing the 5 to 10 most important publications of which the nominee is an author, the names and email addresses of at least two ISMRM members willing to second the nomination, and the curriculum vitae of the candidate.

Distinguished Service Award

This medal is awarded for outstanding contributions to the operation, effectiveness, or good reputation of the Society. Proposals must include a statement of nomination detailing specific contributions of the nominee, the names and email addresses of at least two ISMRM members willing to second the nomination, and the curriculum vitae of the candidate.

Fellow of the Society

This distinction is conferred on those who have made a significant and substantial contribution to research in a field within the Society’s purposes, who have contributed in a significant manner to the development of the Society and/or any of the Predecessor Societies, and/or who have made a significant contribution to education in MR. Nominations for those who contributed to the field in its clinical or scientific development are encouraged.  Proposals must include a statement of nomination detailing specific contributions of the nominee, the names and email addresses of at least two ISMRM members willing to second the nomination, and the curriculum vitae of the candidate.

New this year: The number of letters supporting a nomination in all three award categories (Gold, Distinguished Service and Fellow) is now a maximum of five (5).

Elected members of the ISMRM Executive Committee, Board of Trustees and Awards Committee are not eligible for nomination, nor should these members be asked to nominate or support another candidate. For a list of these members, please click here.

All nominations should be submitted online by 01 August 2019 at 23:59 EDT, one month in advance of the deadline set by the Bylaws in order to ensure that the Awards Committee has not only received a sufficient number and breadth of nominees, but has time to ensure all supporting materials are received. It would also be appreciated if those nominating could append a citation profile of the nominee (Web of Science profiles preferred).

To nominate an ISMRM member for the Gold Medal, Distinguished Service Medal, or as a Fellow of the Society, please follow the instructions on the online form below.
