Since 1971 the Lewis S. Rosenstiel Award for Distinguished Work in Basic Medical Research is awarded by Brandeis University, which says that it was established "as an expression of the conviction that educational institutions have an important role to play in the encouragement and development of basic science as it applies to medicine".[1]

Medals are presented annually at Brandeis University on the basis of recommendations of a panel of scientists selected by the Rosenstiel Basic Medical Sciences Research Center. Awards are given to scientists for recent discoveries of "particular originality" and "importance to basic medical research". A $30,000 prize and a medallion accompanies each award. [2]

The Rosenstiel Basic Medical Sciences Research Center, named after Lewis Solon Rosenstiel, was established in 1968, carrying out research in basic medical science.
