The Albany Medical Center Prize has been created to provide national and international recognition to a physician, biomedical scientist, or group of physicians or scientists, who have made extraordinary and sustained leadership contributions to improving health care and patient care; or who have successfully pursued innovative biomedical research with demonstrated translational benefits applied to improved patient care.
Each year's Albany Medical Center Prize winner will have demonstrated significant outcomes that offer medical value of national or international importance. Albany Medical Center Prize winner activities will include but not be limited to disease and injury management, clinical research, and basic science investigations of diseases and injuries, leading to new discoveries and improved clinical outcomes.
Those honored will be practitioners and/or scientists whose accomplishments and outcomes have been demonstrated in the past quarter century, with preference to demonstrated accomplishments in the past decade. The recipient has full discretionary use of the Albany Medical Center Prize, although it is the Albany Medical Center Prize Committee's hope that at least a portion of the award will be used to advance further positive outcomes in his or her field of expertise. The Albany Medical Center Prize is designed to be both a public award and an important resource for sustaining excellence.
Deadline for Nominations: Mar. 6, 2020
