Founded by Dr. Shaul Massry, professor emeritus of medicine at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California, the nonprofit foundation promotes education and research in nephrology, physiology, and related fields.
The Massry Prize includes a substantial honorarium and twelve of its recipients have gone on to receive the Nobel Prize.
Each year a scientific theme is chosen by the Foundation. The laureates are then selected by a committee of distinguished professors representing both the University of Southern California (USC) and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
The USC Institute for Genetic Medicine is proud to host the annual Massry Prize activities at USC.
