The Lewis Rudin Glaucoma Prize of The New York Academy of Medicine was established in 1995 in honor of Lewis Rudin, the New York City real estate developer and is funded by the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, with additional support provided by Mr. Jack Rudin.
This $50,000 prize is awarded for the most outstanding scholarly article on glaucoma published in a peer-reviewed journal during the previous calendar year. Nominations are solicited from leaders of the ophthalmologic community and reviewed in the spring of the award year.
Nominees for this award must be the first or last author of the published work and must hold primary responsibility for the research.
One prize winner is recommended for ratification by the Academy’s Board of Trustees by the Lewis Rudin Glaucoma Prize Selection Committee, a group of nationally recognized experts in glaucoma research chaired by David H. Abramson, MD of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Weill Medical College of Cornell University. The winner is announced in July of the award year.
Authors may nominate themselves but may not submit multiple articles and must choose only one article to submit for consideration by the committee. All authors of the article receive recognition, however the monetary prize is granted solely to the primary researcher specified in the nomination. Copies of the published article must accompany the completed nomination form.

Jean L. Bolognia, MD, Professor of Dermatology, Vice Chair of Clinical Affairs, and Director of the Pigmented Lesion Clinic at Yale University School of Medicine, delivered the 2013 Howard Fox Memorial Lecture on April 26, 2013 at NYAM. The subject of her lecture, which was sponsored by the NYAM Section on Dermatology, was Signature Nevi. Patients who have an increased number of moles tend to be consistent in the type of mole they produce, and the repetitive type for a given patient is that patient’s signature nevus. Patients with numerous melanocytic nevi, i.e., those who are moley, often produce a particular type of nevus, a so-called signature nevus.
