The award was established in 2004 through the "Jiann-Ping Hsu Memorial Fund" endowed by Dr. Karl Peace. It is intended to encourage students who engage in innovative research in Pharmaceutical and Regulatory Sciences, where Dr. Hsu, a long term and dedicated ICSA member, had a distinguished career and high impact.
The awardee will be selected by a designated committee at the annual ICSA Applied Statistics Symposium along with other student travel awards. The recipient of the "Jiann-Ping Hsu Pharmaceutical and Regulatory Sciences Student Paper Award" will present the award paper at an invited paper session entitled "Jiann-Ping Hsu Pharmaceutical and Regulatory Sciences" during the symposium. The recipient will also receive a plaque commemorating the event and the same monetary sum as the other student travel awards.
