The Lewis and Jack Rudin New York Prize for Medicine and Health was established in 2003 to provide a forum for a distinguished member of the research community to receive recognition from colleagues and the public at large. The awarding of the Prize is a means to promote the sharing of innovative findings from a variety of research areas with both fellow researchers and clinicians in the metropolitan New York region, and also to focus attention on the excellence and dedication of the men and women in the metropolitan New York region striving to find solutions to pressing health concerns.
The New York City academic medicine and research community includes the largest concentration of talented and experienced researchers, educators, and clinicians in the world. These individuals engage in important biomedical, clinical, public health and other research that serves to advance the practice of medicine and the overall health of the public. These dedicated professionals also provide high quality clinical care to individuals from the New York City region and around the world and train the physicians and researchers of tomorrow.
Previous recipients of The Lewis and Jack Rudin New York Prize for Medicine and Health are Dr. David Ho of the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center and The Rockefeller University, Dr. Harold Freeman of the National Cancer Institute, Dr. John H. Laragh of the New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical Center, Dr. Susan Band Horwitz of Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Dr. Barbara Barlow of Harlem Hospital Center.
About the Rudin Family
The late Lewis Rudin was the Co-Chairman, with his brother Jack, of the Rudin Management Company, one of the city’s largest real estate builders, owners, and managers. Lewis Rudin was also the Chairman of the Association for a Better New York (ABNY), which he founded in 1971. Jack Rudin, the Chairman of Rudin Management Company, established the Lewis and Jack Rudin New York Prize for Medicine and Health in 2003.
The Rudin family has a long tradition of service and philanthropy in New York City, establishing endowments at universities and institutions throughout the city, and funding student internships and scholarships, professorships and lecture series. In addition, Jack and Lewis Rudin were the first sponsors of the New York City Marathon. The Marathon trophy is named for their father, Samuel Rudin, who was a devoted marathoner.
The Lewis and Jack Rudin New York Prize for Medicine and Health is supported by the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation.
