  • Consideration will be given to achievements in all medical disciplines and related science(s) and technology;
  • The Award, while normally made to an individual, may also be made to a group, especially where this reflects the multidisciplinary bias of the Award, and where the members of the group meet the criteria selection;

Professor Tom Gibson was a pioneer of plastic surgery and bio-engineering, whose many achievements included co-founding the renowned Bio-engineering Unit at the University of Strathclyde. The concept of an Award in his honour was devised by friends and colleagues from the University of Strathclyde, the University of Glasgow and the British Association of Plastic Surgeons, with support from the Gibson family.

The closing date for nominations for the 2014 award is 2 May 2014.
