About the J. Allyn Taylor International Prize in Medicine

Robarts Research Institute is proud to present the J. Allyn Taylor International Prize in Medicine annually. 

The international scientific community is invited to nominate individual scientists or groups of scientists whose initiatives fall within a particular field of research determined on an annual basis at Robarts and reflecting a principal area of research at the Institute. 

A peer jury then deliberates, and the prize winner or winners are identified.
