Criteria for the Albany Medical Center Prize in Medicine and Biomedical Research

The Albany Medical Center Prize in Medicine and Biomedical Research recognizes, encourages and supports extraordinary and sustained contributions to improved health care and innovative biomedical research that demonstrably facilitates improvements in patient care. Given annually, the $500,000 Prize is one of the largest awards in medicine and biomedical research in the United States. The Prize will be awarded to a physician, scientist or group that has demonstrated substantial achievements of national or international importance in the last quarter of a century, with preference given to accomplishments of the past decade.

The recipient(s) of the Prize will be chosen by a committee comprising some of the nation’s preeminent medical scholars, physicians, professors and biomedical researchers. Designed to be both prestigious public recognition and an important resource for sustaining excellence in health care and biomedical research, it is an expectation that the $500,000 award will be used by the recipient(s) to make further significant advancements in his or her field of expertise.

The 2015 Prize will be awarded at a ceremony in Albany, New York in May 2015.

Completed nominations will be accepted through Dec. 3, 2014.
