The Foundation awards every year a Prize to honour personalities in Switzerland and abroad who have distinguished themselves in a particular way in certain fields of medical research.
As a rule the Prize is awarded between September 1 and December 31 of every year. The Board of Foundation is responsible for the adjudication; if necessary, it may consult the opinion of independent experts.
The next price ceremony will take place on Friday, 6 November 2020.
Since 1974, the Golden Book of the Foundation has honoured the prize winners with a page bearing their original signatures. Here we show examples of the pages of the first two prize winners and the penultimate prize winners: The Golden Book
