Recognising and honouring the best scientific research authored by a pharmacy student
The EAHP-EPSA Student Science Award is offered to one European Pharmaceutical Students' Association (EPSA) member since 2011 to recognise and honour the best scientific research authored by a pharmacy student or recent graduate.
Five pharmacy students received the EAHP-EPSA Student Science Award:
- Mariana Fróis, Portugal, 2011;
- Danika Agius Decelis, Malta, 2014;
- Claudine Aziz, Ireland, 2015;
- Rok Barle, Slovenia, 2016 and;
- Terry Hennache, France, 2018.
The award is given to students who conducted research in the fields of hospital and clinical pharmacy, which represented a significant intellectual contribution promoting the state-of-the-art pharmaceutical research methods and theories in hospital pharmacy. Interested students have the opportunity to submit an abstract, which is later reviewed in accordance with the criteria of innovation, originality, and contribution to the development of hospital pharmacy. The best abstracts are then developed into full scientific papers.
EAHP and EPSA strongly believe involving students in research initiatives is of great importance. The five winners provided us with testimonials, in which they captured the benefits of the award and encouraged students to participate in research.
