Call for Nominations: William B. Abrams Award in Geriatric Clinical Pharmacology
The William B. Abrams Award in Geriatric Clinical Pharmacology was established with support from the Merck Company Foundation in 1996 to honor an investigator in geriatric clinical pharmacology for outstanding contributions to the field.

Among his many accomplishments in geriatric clinical pharmacology, he was the founding Co-Editor of the Merck Manual of Geriatrics, created the Scientific Section on Geriatric Clinical Pharmacology of ASCPT, and developed and funded post-doctoral training programs in geriatric clinical pharmacology.
