The Hamilton Smith Award for Innovative Research

The Hamilton Smith Award for Innovative Research will support the research of junior faculty members in the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine’s Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences. The award honors the accomplishments of Nobel Prize winner Hamilton Smith, who discovered DNA-cutting restriction enzymes as a young researcher at Johns Hopkins. That finding proved pivotal to modern biomedical research.
