The Russ Prize recognizes an outstanding bio-engineering achievement in widespread use that improves the human condition. This achievement should help the public better understand and appreciate the contributions of engineers to our health, well-being and quality of life. An auxiliary purpose of the Russ Prize is to encourage collaboration between the engineering and medical/biological professions to work closely together. Awarded biennially (odd number years), the recipient receives a $500,000 cash award and a gold medallion. NAE members and non-members worldwide are eligible to receive the Russ Prize.
