Posted by on Tuesday, September 29, 2020 in News.

The Earl Sutherland Prize for Achievement in Research is Vanderbilt’s most prestigious faculty honor for achievement in research. This award honors a faculty member who has garnered significant critical recognition on a national or global scale. The award is accompanied by a cash prize of $10,000 and an engraved pewter julep cup. The winner’s name is added to a silver bowl following a famous design by Paul Revere.

James E. Crowe Jr., Ann Scott Carell Professor of Pediatrics and Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology, is this year’s honoree. He also serves as director of the Vanderbilt Vaccine Center. “Throughout his 25 years at Vanderbilt, Jim has solidified his impact as one of the world’s leading experts on the molecular basis for human immunity to viruses,” Diermeier said. “In recent months, his lab has been a leader in identifying a vaccine for COVID-19.”
