Call for Nominations: Sheiner-Beal Pharmacometrics Award
The Sheiner-Beal Pharmacometrics Award has been established as an ASCPT Award by the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) to acknowledge the pioneering contributions of Drs. Lewis B. Sheiner and Stuart Beal to the scientific discipline of pharmacometrics.
Pharmacometrics is defined as the science that quantifies drug, disease and clinical trial information to aid efficient drug development, regulatory decisions and rational therapeutic decision making in patients. It uses models that are generally based on pharmacology, physiology, genetic constitution and/or disease for quantitative analysis of interactions between drugs and patients. The domain of pharmacometrics includes the application of techniques that address the interactions between pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, pharmacogenomics, and disease progression with a focus on populations and variability in the exposure-response relationship.
The goal of the Sheiner-Beal Pharmacometrics Award is to recognize outstanding achievements at the forefront of research or leadership in pharmacometrics and/or application of pharmacometric concepts and techniques to enhance research, development, regulatory evaluation, and/or utilization of therapeutic products.
The candidate must be an investigator or leader who is actively advancing the scientific discipline of pharmacometrics and/or its impact on research, development, regulatory evaluation, or utilization of therapeutic products, and is capable of delivering an engaging and comprehensive lecture on pharmacometrics. The award is intended to recognize clinical pharmacologists, clinician scientists, computational scientists, statisticians and others in academia, industry, government agencies, or consulting whose work falls within the scope of the definition of pharmacometrics.
The Sheiner-Beal Pharmacometrics Award will be presented annually at the ASCPT Annual Meeting. The recipient will present a lecture summarizing the works that form the basis of the award. In addition, the recipient will receive a $1,500 honorarium and a plaque. Travel expenses, hotel expenses and meeting registration will be reimbursed by the Society.

Cystinosis Foundation Deanna Lynn Potts Scholarship
Deanna Lynn Potts was born with Cystinosis and lived to be 27 years old. Before she died, she discussed her wishes to start a scholarship fund for children with Cystinosis.
We know how devastating a chronic illness can have on a family emotionally, physically, socially, and financially. Children with Cystinosis are living longer, thanks to medical science and therefore, embarking on careers.
These careers require education. Education is expensive, yet something we do not want to deprive our children of in our world today. Due to the financially draining medical costs, it might prove difficult to send a child to college.
Through this fund, we hope to help some of those students.
PURPOSE: To provide supplemental financial assistance to an undergraduate student diagnosed with Cystinosis enrolled in an accredited collegiate or vocational program.
SCHOLARSHIP AWARD: A $1000 scholarship awarded annually. The award is contingent upon the winners acceptance to an accredited college, university, or vocational program and will be payable to the education institution to be applied to tuition, room and board.
ELIGIBILITY: Each candidate must be a current high school senior, who has Cystinosis and have a financial need.
Documentation/verification of Cystinosis (e.g. letter from physician.)
An official copy of high school transcript.
Two letters of recommendation from current teachers/faculty members and/or counselors regarding applicant's scholastic aptitude and personal qualifications.
An essay of 500 words. We want to know a person who has played a vital role in student's life. How? Why? The essay should be typewritten and double spaced
A copy of the previous year's income tax return.
JUDGING CRITERIA: The essay will earn a possible 40 points and will be judged on the basis of rationale, grammar and comprehension. Transcripts and letters of recommendation will carry a possible additional 20 points. The Cystinosis Foundation Board will establish an independent judging panel to evaluate and rate the applicants. The decision of the judges is final. Finalists may be interviewed before selection is made.
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: Application and all accompanying documents must be received at the Cystinosis Foundation Office in a single, flat package by March 30th of each year. You can call the Cystinosis Foundation for an application 888-631-1588.
