The 2010 Pearl Meister Greengard Prize was awarded to Drs. Janet Davison Rowley and Mary-Claire King for their insights into cancer research. The guest presenter was Andrea Mitchell.
The Pearl Meister Greengard Prize, awarded annually by The Rockefeller University, was established by Dr. Paul Greengard, the University's Vincent Astor Professor, and his wife, the sculptor Ursula von Rydingsvard. Dr. Greengard donated his monetary share of the 2000 Nobel Prize in Medicine to Rockefeller and, in partnership with generous supporters of the University, created this major international prize. Named in memory of Dr. Greengard's mother, who died giving birth to him, the Pearl Meister Greengard Prize provides recognition of the accomplishments of women in science.
