About the award and lecture series
This award and lecture series was established in 2016 to honor Professor Hermann Joseph Muller—a renowned geneticist, a Nobel Laureate, a social activist, and an esteemed IU Bloomington faculty member (1945-67).
The Muller award and lecture series recognizes luminary international geneticists whose discoveries, like Muller’s, have made or are making a significant impact on the field of genetics and society. In addition to a cash award, the recipient will receive a commemorative medal, will attend an awards ceremony, and will present a public scholarly presentation of his/her work and the societal effect of genetic research. The selection of the awardee will be made by a committee composed of senior faculty at IU Bloomington.
