The Wiley Foundation was established in 2001 to recognize and foster ongoing excellence in scientific achievement and discovery. “We seek to honor research that is distinguished by its excellence, originality and impact on our understanding of biological systems and processes,” explains Deborah Wiley, Chair of the Foundation. “We established The Wiley Prize in Biomedical Sciences to give back to our scientific community and reward those who work tirelessly to open new fields of research and understanding of the scientific process.”
This international award is presented annually and consists of a $50,000 prize and a luncheon in honor of the recipient. The prize winner also gives a lecture on his or her work, which is live-streamed the day of the award and available for later viewing as part of the Current Protocols webinar series.
