New PRISM Prize for Scientific Breakthroughs

To recognize and encourage basic or clinical/translational science, Cedars-Sinai has established a scientific and medical breakthrough prize to be awarded annually to a scientist who has made a remarkable discovery or provided a critical scientific or medical insight within the five preceding years.

The Cedars-Sinai Prize for Research In Scientific Medicine (PRISM prize) will be awarded annually at the commencement ceremony of the Graduate Program in Biomedical Science and Translational Medicine and will consist of a medal and a monetary award of $10,000 to the investigator. All Cedars-Sinai faculty investigators and physicians are eligible for the award.

Nominations should be made by members of the Cedars-Sinai faculty. Self-nomination is not allowed. Applications must be sent to the vice dean for research by April 1.
