Award of $50,000 to a USA researcher who has made significant contributions to the field of biomedicine. The award is intended to recognize major, paradigm-shifting accomplishments that will impact the field by advancing biomedical research knowledge and spreading it to a broad and substantial audience.

The winner will receive a $50,000 award along with a medallion and will present the opening plenary lecture during the University of Pittsburgh’s annual showcase of science and research in fall 2017.



Nominees for the Dickson Prize in Medicine should be actively engaged in innovative, paradigm-shifting biomedical research that is worthy of significant and broad attention. This is a prize for someone whose career has been building, who is at an especially productive point currently, and whose research is—or will be—so influential that it deserves major recognition now. The recipient must be a U.S. citizen.

The letter of nomination must include a detailed description of the nominee’s major scientific research accomplishments and the impact of these contributions to the field of biomedicine. Please cite three to five representative, peer-reviewed publications by the nominee and describe how each was novel, paradigm changing, or seminal in advancing biomedical research knowledge.
