Since 2002, the annual Wiley Prize in Biomedical Sciences, awarded by the Wiley Foundation, has celebrated research that champions novel approaches and that has challenged the accepted thinking in biomedical sciences. Past prize winners were chosen because of their breakthrough research in areas as diverse as genetics, cell motility, folded proteins and siRNA. The impressive list of past recipients includes Nobel Prize and Lasker Basic Medical Research Award winners.
The international award consists of a $50,000 prize and a luncheon in honor of the recipient. This year’s award will be presented on April 13, 2018 at Rockefeller University where the prize winner will also give a lecture on their work as part of The Rockefeller University Lecture Series.
The Wiley Foundation invites and encourages the nomination of exceptional scientists or research teams whose work has achieved an impressive level of excellence. Each nomination should include a short summary describing the significance of the work in its field, a minimum of three supporting letters, and the nominee’s Curriculum Vitae. Nominations can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org through September 30th, 2017.
