Half a Million for Gene Sequencers

The 10th annual Albany Medical Center Prize—the U.S.'s biggest prize in biomedicine—will go to three scientists who conceptualized the Human Genome Project: Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health; Eric Lander, founding director of the Broad Institute at Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; and David Botstein, director of Princeton University's Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics. The three share the $500,000 prize. Collins is prevented by NIH's strict ethics provisions from receiving his share of the money; he also can't direct it to his favorite charity. So what happens to it is up to the Albany prize board.
