2018 Warren Alpert Foundation Prize



The Warren Alpert Foundation Prize is one of the most prestigious awards in biomedicine. Nominees regularly include many  of the world’s foremost physician-scientists and researchers, in a variety of disciplines.

Prize recipients are selected by the Foundation’s Scientific Advisory Committee, comprising internationally renowned biomedical scientists and chaired by Jeffrey S. Flier, MD, the dean of Harvard Medical School. The goal is to recognize contributions to humanity and breakthroughs in the understanding and curing of major diseases.

The Warren Alpert Foundation supports innovative individuals and organizations dedicated to understanding and curing disease through groundbreaking research, scholarship and service. The Prize is awarded at the Foundation’s annual signature symposium each Fall.
