The Lifetime Achievement Award is ISIR’s highest honor, reserved for individuals who have, over their professional lifetime, substantially advanced the field of intelligence.
The 2010 awardee was Professor Tom Bouchard.
Tom pioneered adopted-apart studies on intelligence, and consistently championed and advanced the scientific study of the genetics of IQ. His work with the Minnesota adoption and twin studies lead to multiple landmark papers in Journals such as Science. He also supervised students who have gone on to considerable achievements in their own right.
