The Award is granted by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) in memory of Pierre D. Delmas, IOF's renowned founding president who was instrumental in the growth of the Foundation and in advancing osteoporosis research and advocacy worldwide.

IOF President John Kanis presented the Award, stating, "This Pierre Delmas Award is presented to an individual who has made a significant and unstinting contribution to the advancement of the work of IOF. As a longtime member of the IOF Board and leading researcher elected to the IOF Committee of Scientific Advisors, Socrates Papapoulos has played a significant role within IOF. Since 1998, when he was co-author of the landmark EU Report on Osteoporosis, in his role as senior scientific advisor of the European Union Osteoporosis Project, and as Vice Chair of the European Union Osteoporosis Consultation Panel, Socrates Papapoulos has worked to advance the priority given to musculoskeletal disease within European health care systems."

He received his MD from the University of Athens, Greece and he was trained in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology in Athens and at the Middlesex Hospital, London, UK. Since 1974 he has been continuously engaged in basic and clinical research in disorders of calcium and bone metabolism with special emphasis on the basic and clinical pharmacology of the bisphosphonates particularly in osteoporosis. More recently a main focus of his research has been the pathophysiology of conditions characterized by high bone mass.
