Hopkins Cancer Researcher Wins World’s Richest Academic Prize — and $3 Million



Nobel, schmobel:  those stingy Swedes only give away $1.4 million with their award. The real prize in the academic world is the new Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences, which has a more boring name but a more exciting check:  $3 million, the largest academic prize in the world. So congrats to Johns Hopkins professor of oncology and pathology Bert Vogelstein, who’s one of this year’s winners.
