Honor an Innovator with the Sanford Lorraine Cross Award

The Sanford Lorraine Cross Award will honor a trailblazer in medical research and innovation with $1 million.

While a sophisticated selection process will help us determine areas of innovation and pioneers leading that change, we’re also currently accepting nominations.

Our ideal candidate is the unheralded medical innovator who transcends convention to tackle the most complex and pressing conditions. The objective is not to celebrate achievement or basic research discoveries, but to catalyze game-changing innovation that promises to profoundly impact patients’ lives and health care delivery today.
