The George Gamow® Award, established by the Russian-American Science Association (RASA), was awarded in 2021 to
Mark Lipovetsky (Columbia University) – for original studies of modern Russian literature, in particular postmodernism, in a broad cultural context,
Vadim Gladyshev (Harvard University) – for characterization of selenoproteins and molecular mechanisms of aging, and for contribution to the development of collaborations across the borders.
The George Gamow® Award is awarded annually to members of the Russian-speaking scientific diaspora for outstanding contributions to science and is named after George Gamow, a great physicist and popularizer of science who worked in the USSR and the USA.
