The IADR Gold Medal is the highest recognition bestowed by the IADR. The IADR Gold Medal is presented to an individual who is a previous recipient of an IADR Distinguished Scientist Award (in any one of the current 17 categories) who has then built on their original scientific accomplishments to more broadly impact science, health research, or population health through expansion of their scientific field of inquiry into other disciplines or through higher administrative positions in academia, government, non-profit or private industry, or some combination thereof.

IADR may award the Gold Medal annually, provided a suitable candidate is nominated.

Criteria:

  • Any IADR member may nominate a candidate for this award.
  • Candidates must be IADR members.
  • Candidates must be a previous recipient of an IADR Distinguished Scientist Award who has then built on their original scientific accomplishments to more broadly impact science, health research, or population health through expansion of their scientific field of inquiry into other disciplines or through higher administrative positions in academia, government, non-profit or private industry, or some combination thereof.
  • Once a nomination is made, it will be considered each year for three years.
  • A person can only receive the IADR Gold Medal one time.
  • IADR members/officers of the Board of Directors are ineligible for this award until five years after their last year serving on the Board.

 

Nomination Procedures:

The following information must accompany the nomination

  • A one page nomination letter describing the reasons the individual is being nominated for the award.
  • Curriculum Vitae (no more than 10 pages).

 

Award:

Nominations and accompanying materials are reviewed by the IADR Honorary Membership Committee (made up of the five most recent past Presidents of the IADR) and confirmed by the IADR Board of Directors. The Award consists of a gold medallion presented at the Opening Ceremonies of the IADR General Session.
