The Elaine Redding Brinster Prize in Science or Medicine recognizes foundational discoveries in the fields of biological science and medicine. The Prize— a medal, a citation, and a monetary award of $100,000—is awarded annually to an individual from any country to recognize their outstanding discovery for its unique impact on biomedicine. 

The Ralph L. Brinster Symposium is an annual scientific symposium, held in conjunction with the Prize, to highlight breakthrough science across the entire spectrum of biomedical research. The Symposium, co-sponsored by the Deans of the School of Veterinary Medicine and Raymond and Ruth Perelman School of Medicine, features presentations from extraordinary scientists who rank among the leaders in their fields.

The Elaine Redding Brinster Prize and Ralph L. Brinster Symposium are generously funded by endowments provided by the children of Elaine Redding Brinster and Ralph Brinster.
