Envision Pharma Group wins "Best Original Research” prize at ISMPP for the second year running

For the second year running, Envision Pharma Group has won the Best Original Research prize at the Annual Meeting of the International Society for Medical Publication Professionals (ISMPP)

For the second year running, Envision Pharma Group has won the Best Original Research prize at the Annual Meeting of the International Society for Medical Publication Professionals (ISMPP). ‘Development and reporting of research reporting guidelines — who and what are missing?’, conducted by  Dr Serina Stretton, Dr Lauri Arnstein, and Professor Karen Woolley, was presented at the  Annual Meeting of ISMPP, May 1-3, National Harbor, Maryland, USA.

This year’s success follows on from winning the Best Original Research Prize at last year’s ISMPP meeting. The ‘Forewarned is forearmed: Trends in industry-sponsored clinical trials relevant to publication professionals’ research was conducted by Dr Michelle Anderson, Masayo Hisayama, Dr Jessica Deckman, Dr Cassandra Haley, and Professor Karen Woolley.

Similar to the global nature of the medical communications profession, these research projects involved an international and multi-disciplinary research team of Envision employees from the US, UK, Japan, and Australia and, as may be expected at a leading medical communications conference, Envision’s presentations included augmented reality features, such as video clips, animated graphics, and Japanese audio translations.

Karen Woolley commented, “Research is not easy, but research is needed to inform, guide, and, is some cases, defend our profession. We want to thank ISMPP for providing members with a forum for sharing research results. We’re also humbled and delighted that our peers have recognized the quality and relevance of our research. To win the ‘Best Original Research’ prize for the second year in a row is a credit to the curiosity, ingenuity, and effort of our scientific teams. Importantly, our creative and editorial teams always ensure we can share our results with ISMPP attendees in visually appealing and interactive ways. The best research is always a team effort!”

Successive wins provide independent endorsement of Envision’s thought-leadership position in the industry.  Envision staff have to know the field to ask relevant questions and the answers help Envision’s clients and the broader medical communications profession.
