During a session hosted by the International Biometric Society at its 30th Conference in August 2020, ISI President John Bailer presented the ISI Karl Pearson Prize to the 2019 winner Yoav Benjamini.

The prize was awarded for the Benjamini-Hochberg paper "Controlling the false discovery rate: a practical and powerful approach to multiple testing” which appeared in the Journal of Royal Statistical Society Series B in 1995 (no. 1, pp. 289–300).

Yoav Benjamini, Nathan and Lily Silver Professor of Applied Statistics at Tel-Aviv University, in his turn, presented the Pearson Lecture as a celebration of the research contribution that had a profound influence on statistical theory, methodology, practice or applications
