FOUNDERS AWARD


History

The Organizing Committee of the 32nd Annual Conference on Bioassay, Analytical, and Environmental Radiochemistry began the tradition by presenting three awards for meritorious service to the Bioassay Conference. The Organizing Committees of several subsequent Annual Conferences carried on this tradition, which is not necessarily an annual event.     
                                                                                                       
The 65th Annual Radiobioassay and Radiochemical Measurements Conference is a continuation of an informal conference that has a long history.

The Award

The award has taken the form of either a parchment, which was also signed by the attendees or a wall plaque. The text of the award:     

Whereas, the participants in this conference pursue professional excellence and soulful cogitation,

Whereas, these publications of acclaim are the sole documents issued by this conference for public perlustration,         
Be It Known that all honors, rights, privileges, and praises which pertain to this letter of recognition are presented to
