The 26th annual Sabin Gold Medal Ceremony was held April 2, 2019, at the National Academy of Sciences building in Washington, D.C., and honored Dr. Carol Baker for her contributions to the health of pregnant women and babies through groundbreaking research and advocacy.

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.
