Past Awards and Honors Recipients
Farrington Daniels Award for Best Article on Radiation Dosimetry Published in Medical Physics for the previous Calendar Year
Moses & Sylvia Greenfield Award for the Best Paper Published in Medical Physics for the previous Calendar Year (formerly Sylvia Sorkin Greenfield Award)
This award recognizes outstanding scientific achievement in medical physics for a young scientist member of the AAPM. The award will usually be given to a member under the age of 45 who is no more than 10 years beyond the awarding of his/her doctoral degree. No more than one award will be given in any year and the award does not have to be awarded every year.

Each year AAPM conducts a Young Investigators’ Competition for the Annual Meeting. Young Investigators are encouraged to submit abstracts for the competition. The 10 highest scored Young Investigator submissions determined by abstract reviewers are selected to be presented in a special symposium, in honor of University of Wisconsin Professor Emeritus John R. Cameron, Ph.D.
An award for Junior Investigators has been established in honor of Dr. Jack Fowler, Emeritus Professor of Human Oncology and Medical Physics, University of Wisconsin. Junior Investigators were encouraged to submit abstracts for the competition. The top scoring Junior Investigator submission determined by abstract reviewers was selected.

An award recognizing outstanding scientific research by Junior Investigators has been established by the AAPM Science Council. The award is based on abstracts submitted to the Scientific Program of the AAPM Annual Meeting, judged according to criteria of significance, innovation, and the potential for major scientific impact in an area of cutting edge interest in medical physics.
