About The Ross Prize in Molecular Medicine
The annual Ross Prize in Molecular Medicine is established in conjunction with the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research and Molecular Medicine. The winner will be an active investigator having produced innovative, paradigm-shifting research that is worthy of significant and broad attention in the field of molecular medicine. We expect this individual will continue to garner recognition in future years, and that their current accomplishments reflect a rapidly rising career trajectory of discovery and invention. The winner will receive an honorarium of $50,000 USD, travel expenses to accept the award in New York, and will present the keynote lecture at the Award Ceremony and Mini-Symposium (traditionally held during the month of June).
