The 25th annual Sabin Gold Medal Ceremony was held April 24, 2018, at the National Academy of Sciences building in Washington, D.C., and honored Dr. Paul Offit for his role in the development of a life-saving rotavirus vaccine and his leadership as a dedicated advocate for immunization.
The Sabin Gold Medal Award has been awarded annually since 1994 and is given to a distinguished individual who has made extraordinary contributions in the field of vaccinology or a complementary field. Each recipient is a role model for young researchers, someone whose career has saved lives through the development and use of vaccines. The Medal is the highest scientific honor given by the Sabin Vaccine Institute and commemorates the legacy of the late Dr. Albert B. Sabin. This prestigious award is presented annually by the Sabin Vaccine Institute.
