DO you know an IPEM member who you think would be a suitable candidate for the Institute to nominate for an international award for excellence in medical physics? If so, we would like to hear from you!
Nominations are now open for the John Mallard Award, which is presented by the International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP).
This will be the second time the award has been presented by the IOMP. The first John Mallard Award was won by IPEM member Professor Paul Marsden, Scientific Director of PET Medical Physics at King’s College London, in 2016.
IPEM is now asking members to suggest names of a medical physicist they know who is working in academia, clinical practice, or industry, and who has developed an innovation of high scientific quality and successfully applied it in clinical practice, who they feel deserves to be nominated by the Institute for the award.
The John Mallard Award is given triennially at the IOMP International Conference on Medical Physics and will be presented at this year’s conference in Santiago, Chile, in September.
The award honours the pioneering work of Professor John Mallard OBE, who played a crucial role in the development of two of the world’s most important medical technologies – Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET).
Professor Mallard was one of the Founders of the IOMP and was the first IOMP Secretary General, later becoming IOMP President and also Founding President of the International Union for Physical and Engineering Sciences in Medicine (IUPESM ).
If you think you know a medical physicist who deserves to be nominated by IPEM for the award, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than Monday 11 March. Self-nomination is not allowed for this award.
