Distinguished Scientists

When Einstein opened its doors in 1955, the New York Times was already noting that “the new medical school’s distinguished and talented faculty assured the institution of a place in the ranks of the great medical schools in the world. Einstein’s history of scientific innovation and storied culture of collaboration fosters excellence in scientific research.

The discoveries and life’s work by Einstein faculty and Einstein PhD alumni have been recognized with prestigious awards, including the membership in academies such as the National Academy of Science, The Presidential Medal of Science, and the MacArthur Foundation.


National Academy of Sciences 

Members are elected to the National Academy of Sciences in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research. Membership is a widely accepted mark of excellence in science and is considered one of the highest honors that a scientist can receive.

Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigators

Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) investigators, widely known for their creativity and productivity, push the bounds of knowledge in biomedical research. HHMI investigators have support to follow their ideas through to fruition, even if that process takes a very long time. HHMI's philosophy of selecting “people, not projects” selects researchers who bring innovative approaches to the study of biological problems.
