Three World-Renowned Philadelphia Scientists Are Named As Recipients Of The 2013 John Scott Award
Date:11/14/2013

st John Scott as a lasting legacy to the scientific achievements of Benjamin Franklin and awarded in Philadelphia each year since 1822 to "ingenious men and women who make useful inventions" to benefit society as a whole.  Past recipients include 15 winners of the Nobel Prize, among them Marie Curie, Guglielmo Marconi, R. Buckminster Fuller, Baruch Blumberg, Kary Mullis, K. Barry Sharpless and most recently physicist Saul Perlmutter, who won the Scott Award in 2005 and went on to win the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2011.

"Each of the 2013 winners bring honor to the legacy of Benjamin Franklin," said Ronald Donatucci, President of the Board of City Trusts, which administers the award for the City of Philadelphia.  "That was John Scott's purpose in establishing the award upon his death in 1815, and it is clear from the groundbreaking achievements of Drs. Dutton, Adzick and Brent that Dr. Franklin's advice remains as true today as it did during his lifetime: 'An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.'"

"The John Scott Award is one of the top prizes in the world of science and medicine, and it is truly a testament to the remarkable research and innovation that is occurring here that all three of the 2013 awardees conduct their research in the Philadelphia region," said Dr. Harvey Rubin, a Professor of Medicine, Microbiology and Computer Science at Penn and the Secretary of the John Scott Award Advisory Committee, which recommends candidates for the award to the Board of Directors of City Trusts.
