The Beaumont Prize recognizes a member's major contribution that has significantly advanced gastroenterological basic or clinical research. The AGA is proud to be awarding this honor to two deserving individuals.

His work broke major ground in both human and fundamental immunology. In all of his roles, Dr. Blumberg distinguishes himself by exercising the highest standards of scientific inquiry and integrity, a temperate and inclusive leadership, and an innovative and passionate commitment to mentorship and career development of trainees and colleagues.

He is a very collegial and ethical individual who has earned the respect of his co-workers and peers throughout the world.
