The Albany Medical Center Prize in Medicine and Biomedical Research is the United States' highest value prize in medicine and biomedical research, awarded by the Albany Medical Center. Monetary award among prizes for medicine, the Albany Medical Center Prize is third only to the $1.2 million Nobel Prize in Medicine and the $1 million Shaw Prize in life science and medicine.[1]

Awarded annually, the $500,000 prize is bestowed to any physician or scientist, or group, whose work has led to significant advances in the fields of health care and scientific research with demonstrated translational benefits applied to improved patient care.

The prize is a legacy to its founder, the late Morris "Marty" Silverman. At the inaugural awards ceremony in Albany, NY in March 2001, Albany Medical Center Prize founder Marty Silverman started a tradition that will be carried on for one hundred years, the duration of the Prize. Marty's promise was to light one candle each year to honor that year's recipient.
