The Pearl Meister Greengard Prize
An International Award Recognizing Outstanding Women in Biomedical Research
2014 recipient Lucy Shapiro, Ph.D.
The Pearl Meister Greengard Prize, awarded by The Rockefeller University, was established by the late Dr. Paul Greengard, who served as the University’s Vincent Astor Professor, and his wife, the sculptor Ursula von Rydingsvard. Dr. Greengard donated his entire monetary share of the 2000 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine to Rockefeller and, in partnership with generous supporters of the University, created this major international prize that recognizes the accomplishments of outstanding women scientists.
Each year, the University invites a woman who has achieved distinction in such fields as government, international relations, business, journalism, science, and the arts to speak at the award ceremony and present the Prize. It is named in memory of Dr. Greengard’s mother, who died giving birth to him.
