Ethics Prize in Psychopharmacology

CINP is pleased to announce that in 2018 the Ethics Prize in Psychopharmacology will be presented at the 31st World Congress in parallel with the other international CINP sponsored awards. The Ethics Prize in Psychopharmacology will recognise an individual’s outstanding achievements in ethics research within the field of psychopharmacology as well as their contribution to the promotion of public awareness of ethics in psychopharmacology and contributions to the world-wide solution of issues and questions within the ethical practice of psychopharmacology. While the subject of ethics involves all of human behaviour; ethics within medicine and medical research, particularly within the field of psychopharmacology, raises numerous sensitive issues related to the very essence of human nature.


Areas included for consideration in this prize include;

1) Ethics of scientific responsibility in publishing in psychopharmacology

2) Conflict of interest in clinical research

3) Treatment of research subjects both human and animal

4) Informed consent in psychopharmacology research

5) Doctor patient relationships in psychopharmacology.


Applicants must be nominated by a CINP member and include a CV and one to three page statement of the justification of the nomination. Applications to this award will be judged by the Ethics Prize Committee, an international committee of experts in the field. All submissions should be received by Friday 12th January 2018. The successful applicant will receive complimentary registration and up to three nights’ accommodation at the Congress Hotel.
