2019 Walker Prize

Join us for the awarding of the 2019 Walker Prize to Jack W. Szostak, PhD, and the presentation of his lecture The Origin of Life on the Early Earth.

The Walker Prize recognizes "meritorious published scientific investigation and discovery" in any scientific field. The recipient must be a noted scientist, professor, or researcher who is a superb science communicator via the written word and is well known for superlative work in her/his field. The prize was established in 1864 by Dr. William Johnson Walker, one of the most eminent surgeons of his era and a generous benefactor of the Boston Society of Natural History, the Museum's founding organization.
