Foundation for the NIH Announces Lurie Prize Recognizing Outstanding Achievement by a Young Biomedical Scientist
Date:2/26/2013

a true pioneer of medical science.”

Born in Tashkent in the former Soviet Republic of Uzbekistan, Dr. Medzhitov studied biology and biochemistry when financial resources for scientific research were scarce. While poring over single copies of medical journals, he discovered an article by Dr. Charles A. Janeway, Jr. that sparked his interest in immunology and eventually led to a fellowship in the U.S. and current professorship in immunobiology at Yale University, in New Haven, Connecticut.

“I am very grateful to be the first recipient of the Lurie Prize and appreciate the recognition of not only my own work but that of young scientists in biomedical research who will be so recognized in the future,” said Medzhitov.

The Lurie Prize was established by well-known, global philanthropist Ann Lurie. It reflects her passion for advancing biomedical research and medical care. Her significant financial commitments have launched and benefited research and development, as well as patient care initiatives at the University of Michigan; Northwestern University; the recently-dedicated Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago; and health initiatives in Kenya, China and Rwanda.

“My specific interest is to reward and acknowledge a scientist who makes a discovery that is clearly a game changer in terms of medical and biological research,” said Ms. Lurie.

The Lurie Prize recognizes young scientists, defined as individuals under the age of 52, who have made paradigm changing contributions to biomedical research.

“The Lurie Prize celebrates biomedical research and more importantly, the most outstanding young investigator on the basis of his or her body of work,” said Maria Freire, PhD, President of the FNIH.  “Dr. Medzhitov is one of the most brilliant scientists in the field of immunology today and we are proud to present to him this inaugural prize.”

“The FNIH is grateful to Ann Lurie for her tireless work
