The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine is inviting nominations for the 2017 Dickson Prize in Medicine. Established in 1971, the prize is awarded annually to an American biomedical researcher who has made significant, progressive contributions to medicine.
Nominees should be actively engaged in innovative, paradigm-shifting biomedical research that is worthy of significant and broad attention. The prize is specifically designed for to honor a researcher whose career is at an especially productive point currently, and whose research is — or will be — so influential that it deserves major recognition now.
The winner of the 2018 Dickson Prize in Medicine will receive a $50,000 cash prize, a medallion, and will present the opening plenary lecture during the University of Pittsburgh’s annual showcase of science and research in the fall of 2018.
To be eligible, nominees must be a citizen of the United States.
