The Novitski Prize, named in honor of Drosophila geneticist Edward Novitski (1918-2006), is designed to recognize an extraordinary level of creativity and intellectual ingenuity in solving significant problems in genetics research. The award recognizes scientific achievement that stands out from the body of innovative work, that is deeply impressive to creative masters in the field, and that solves a difficult problem that may have evaded the genetics scientific community. It recognizes the beautiful and intellectually ingenious experimental design and execution involved in genetics scientific discovery.
