The Max Forman Research Award

The Max Forman Research Award

The Max Forman Senior Research Prize is the Foundation’s most prestigious award, presented to a member of the Faculty of Medicine whose research achievements have enriched the academic environment and advanced scientific understanding. This prize was established many years ago by Sophie Forman in memory of her late husband, businessman and philanthropist Max Forman. It traditionally alternated from year to year between a junior and a senior member of the faculty. With the establishment of three new junior awards, however, The Max Forman Prize is now awarded every two to three years as a senior prize of $10,000.
