Lewis Thomas Prize to be awarded to Kay Redfield Jamison
Date:5/7/2013

Clinical psychologist and author Kay Redfield Jamison will be presented with Rockefeller University's 2012 Lewis Thomas Prize for Writing about Science at a ceremony on June 5, 2013. The award recognizes Jamison's 1993 book Touched with Fire: Manic-Depressive Illness and the Artistic Temperament, which examines the relationship between artistic creativity and mood disorders.

Named after its first recipient, writer, educator and physician-scientist Lewis Thomas, the Prize was established in 1993 by the university's Board of Trustees and honors "the rare individual who bridges the worlds of science and the humanities whose voice and vision can tell us about science's aesthetic and philosophical dimensions, providing not merely new information but cause for reflection, even revelation." Past recipients of the award include Oliver Sacks, Jared Diamond and E.O. Wilson.

Jamison, who is the Dalio Family Professor in Mood Disorders, a professor of psychiatry and the co-director of the Mood Disorders Center at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, has made extensive contributions to the field of psychology and is considered one of the country's foremost authorities on manic-depressive bipolar illness. She is co-author of the standard medical text on the illness, which was chosen as the most outstanding book in the biomedical sciences by the American Association of Publishers, and she has written numerous scientific articles on mood disorders, lithium treatment, suicide and creativity.

Jamison is a pioneer in the movement to destigmatize mental illness. Her 1995 memoir, An Unquiet Mind, chronicles her own experience with bipolar disorder, and was cited by several major publications as one of the best books of the year. Night Falls Fast: Understanding Suicide was a national bestseller and selected by The New York Times as a Notable Book of 1999. Throughout her career she has received numerous awards, including a MacArthur Fellowship.
