Nominations for the 2022 Vanderbilt Prize in Biomedical Science are now being accepted. The nomination deadline is Dec. 1.

Since 2006, the Vanderbilt Prize has recognized women scientists around the country who have “stellar” records of research accomplishments and who are known for their mentorship of other women in science.

Previous award recipients include National Medal of Science winner Nancy Andreasen, MD, PhD, Laurie Glimcher, MD, president and CEO of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Nobel Prize laureates Elizabeth Blackburn, PhD, and Jennifer Doudna, PhD.

Winners receive an honorarium, deliver a lecture at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and mentor a Vanderbilt Prize Student Scholar, a woman graduate student in the biomedical sciences at Vanderbilt.

Nomination packets must include a nomination form, a letter of nomination from the nominee’s department chair or dean, one letter of recommendation from a distinguished peer in basic or clinical research or in clinical practice and a complete CV. Nominations of women from underrepresented populations are encouraged.
