The fund shall be used to support an annual scientific symposium or conference at Yale, which shall be named in honor of Professor Sidney Altman. An overarching objective of the symposium will be to sustain Professor Altman’s enduring legacy as a scientist, mentor, and educator. Professor Altman shared the 1989 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, which was awarded for discovery of the catalytic properties of RNA. Professor Altman was the Sterling Professor of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, as well as Chair of Biology and Dean of Yale College. The fund will be distributed at the discretion of the Vice Provost for Research.
