The Foundation for Gender-Specific Medicine and Gender and the Genome (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers) announced a competition for a prize of $25,000 (the Robert S. Birch Award). The intent of the prize is to encourage submissions of original research or scholarly legal/ethical commentary of the highest quality concerning the relevance of biological sex/gender to cutting-edge 21st-century science for publication in Gender and the Genome. A blue-ribbon panel convened specifically for this purpose will judge the submitted papers.

The Foundation for Gender-Specific Medicine is a continuation of the Partnership for Gender-Specific Medicine formed at Columbia University in 1997. This competition reflects the current focus on the new science of the 21st century, which is expanding to explore the world that the Human Genome Project opened in 2000, when an international team of experts provided a solid description of the architecture of the human genetic code.
