The Ross Prize in Molecular Medicine is awarded by the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research and its international, peer-reviewed journal, Molecular Medicine. This award, which is given out annually, helps to motivate and cultivate promising careers in the fields of science and research.
Those who are honored with The Ross Prize will be diligent investigators who show that they are actively working toward discovery and invention. The awardee will receive a trophy, a $50,000 honorarium and an all-expenses-paid trip to the award ceremony in New York where he or she will present the keynote lecture.
Huda Y. Zoghbi, MD, professor in the Departments of Pediatrics, Molecular and Human Genetics, Neurology and Neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine, is the recipient of the 2018 sixth annual Ross Prize in Molecular Medicine.
