Nanomedicine is an emerging field that focuses on using nanotechnology to impact the field of medicine. Powerful new ways of studying, diagnosing and treating diseases have been the dividends of basic research in the field of nanoscience. Indeed, this field and the materials devices that derive from it, have a chance to revolutionize medicine as we currently know it.
In 2015, with a generous donation from entrepreneur David Kabiller, Northwestern established the $250,000 Kabiller Prize in Nanoscience and Nanomedicine and the $10,000 Kabiller Young Investigator Award in Nanoscience and Nanomedicine.
Every other year, the Kabiller Prize recognizes individuals who have made a career-long, significant impact in the field of nanotechnology applied to medicine and biology. The Kabiller Young Investigator Award recognizes individuals who have made breaking discoveries within the last few years in the same area that have the potential to make a lasting impact.
