Anders Jahre's Awards for Medical Research honor research of outstanding quality in basic and clinical medicine. The prizes are awarded by the University of Oslo and are among the largest within Nordic biomedical research.
- The Anders Jahre Senior Medical Prize (the main prize) includes a grant of NOK 1,000,000
- The Anders Jahre Prize for Young Scientists includes a grant of NOK 400,000
- The prize is awarded every year in October
The prizes are awarded by the University of Oslo after nomination by a committee appointed by the University.
All professors of medicine serving in a Nordic country are invited to nominate potential awardees. We ask for a thorough explanation of the reason that the nominee should be considered for the prize.
The nominations for this year's awards had to be received within February 1 2018.
In 1953, Anders Jahre, a Norwegian shipowner, entrepreneur and philanthropist, donated one million Norwegian kroner to the University of Oslo, later followed by several additional endowments. These were used to establish the Anders Jahre Foundation for the Promotion of Science.
