Kimberly Adams, PhD student in the UB School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (UB SPPS) is the recipient of a 2022 Unsung Hero Award from the International Society of Pharmacometrics (ISoP).
The ISoP Unsung Hero Award recognizes noteworthy candidates who are ISoP members and have demonstrated significant dedication, commitment, and contributions to the effective operations of ISoP.
For the past several years, Adams has been a volunteer on the ISoP Education Working Group. This group coordinates and oversees educational programs (other than conferences) to meet recognized professional needs of the ISoP membership and programs to advance and promote the science of pharmacometrics.
One of the group’s initiatives is to identify and index resources and global training programs that are beneficial to those interested in learning pharmacometrics. To help identify these resources and training programs, Adams and the working group created and administered a survey to all ISoP members. The results of their findings, Knowledge dissemination and central indexing of resources in pharmacometrics: an ISOP education working group initiative, was published in the Journal of Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics.
Adams was awarded the ISoP Unsung Hero Award for her continued involvement on the ISoP Education Working Group and for her dedication to bringing the pharmacometrics knowledge dissemination and central indexing initiative to fruition.
“I truly appreciate the acknowledgement of my contributions within this working group, and I am honored to receive the Unsung Hero Award,” says Adams. “Although I will not be attending the Thirteenth American Conference on Pharmacometrics later this month, I look forward to future ISoP initiatives for the opportunity to continue working and collaborating with other scientists who are passionate about the field of pharmacometrics.”
Adams will be recognized at the Thirteenth American Conference on Pharmacometrics (ACoP13) Opening Session and ISoP Awards Ceremony on October 30, 2022.
The mission of ISoP is to promote and advance the discipline of pharmacometrics through integration, innovation and impact.
