Fellows Committee

ASA Fellowship

The American Statistical Association recognizes outstanding contributions to the statistics profession with the honorary title of an ASA Fellow.  Dozens of the Biopharmaceutical Section’s members have been elected ASA Fellows.  The list of the Section’s fellows since 1967 can be found on the Award page.

Each year ASA Fellows are selected by the ASA Committee on Fellows.  The election results are announced in late April or early May, and the Section’s newly elected ASA Fellows are honored at the business meeting held on Tuesday night at JSM. Please see this resource for more information.

Fellows Committee

The Fellows Committee consists of ASA Fellows who are experienced with the nomination process, including those who have served on the ASA Committee on Fellows.  Although the Committee does not directly nominate Section members, it provides support and general guidance by reviewing and editing nomination packages, helping identify authors of supporting letters or writing supporting letters. 

The Committee’s current chair is Weili He, with members including Bruce Binkowitz, Paul Gallo, and Inna Perevozskaya. Please reach out to Weili for any questions about the nomination process.

The BIOP Fellow Committee will review anonymized dossiers. The fellow committee members are experienced statisticians who are also ASA Fellows. Nominators from BIOP are encouraged to send completed dossiers for review to the current chair of the BIOP Fellows Committee, who will send it to one of the available reviewers and provide feedback regarding potential gaps and improvements within approximately two weeks. Please submit for review well in advance of the ASA submission deadline in order to receive feedback in time to make adjustments to the dossier.
