The prestige of the Albany Medical Center Prize in Medicine and Biomedical Research is well understood.
“I myself would put (the Albany Prize) in this constellation of world-class prizes already, even though it’s only about a decade old,” David Pendlebury, a Citation Analyst at Thomson Reuters, a well-recognized business data provider, recently told the Albany Times Union “Not just because of the monetary amount, but because of the people who have been chosen.”
Indeed, three Nobel Prize winners have been among the ranks of researchers honored in the 12-year history of the award. In total, 21 world-renown investigators have been recipients of this award.
To be considered, one must be nominated by a peer, then pass through a rigorous screening process, and then be considered by the Albany Prize selection committee.
