Biomedical researchers worldwide are invited to apply for the Taubman Prize, which recognizes and rewards translational research that has made a significant difference to patient care.
The awardee will receive $100,000 and be hosted for a two-day visiting professorship to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
Deadline for nominations is February 1; the recipient will be announced during the spring of 2019. Application instructions and the nomination form are available at TaubmanInstitute.org/taubman-prize.
Taubman Institute founder A. Alfred Taubman established the prize in 2011 to honor translational medical research taking place beyond U-M, and to attract the foremost thought leaders in bioscience to Ann Arbor, for an exchange of ideas and expertise.
“The prize salutes those whose body of work makes lives better for patients with challenging conditions,” said Charles F. Burant, MD, PhD, director of the Taubman Institute. “And it promotes even more breakthroughs by bringing together global experts in a collaborative setting.”
The Taubman Prize is presented every other year to to the non U-M scientist who has done the most to transform laboratory discoveries into clinical applications for patients suffering from disease. A national panel of former Taubman Prize recipients and other eminent medical scientists will select the 2019 awardee. Please note that nominees no longer are required to hold an MD degree.
Founded in 2008 by philanthropist A. Alfred Taubman, the Taubman Institute aims to empower medical scientists to expand the boundaries of discovery, to develop new therapies for disease and to alleviate human suffering.
