The Medawar Prize, named after Society co-founder Sir Peter Medawar, is recognized as the world's highest dedicated award for the most outstanding contributions in the field of transplantation. The Medawar Prize has been awarded at each of our Society's biennial Congresses since 1990.
The award recognizes the outstanding investigators whose contributions have had such a profound influence on the field of organ transplantation. The Medawar Prize is universally considered to be commensurate with the most outstanding world prizes for scientific achievement.
These awards recognize individuals who have made a major international impact in the field of transplantation. The awards are given out at each International Congress of The Transplantation Society.
The Young Investigator Awards are given to recipients who have submitted abstracts to the International Congress of The Transplantation Society and received the highest scores from an international panel of reviewers.
The Transplantation Society (TTS), along with collaboration of National and International Societies, acknowledges the contribution of basic science to the field of Transplantation.
The Transplantation Science Committee (TSC) of The Transplantation Society (TTS) will award the first two new prestigious annual prizes to the best basic science and translational science papers published in Transplantation.
