Honored to Receive Templeton Prize

Posted on by Dr. Francis Collins

Last May, it was such an honor to learn that I’d been selected the 2020 Templeton Prize Laureate. The virtual ceremony was held last night at the National Academy of Sciences. But back in August, folks with the Templeton Prize recorded this brief video in which they asked me to reflect on the pandemic and the quest to find a cure. I enjoyed seeing the video, and I hope you do, too. The Templeton Prize honors people whose career achievements advance Sir John Templeton’s philanthropic vision: applying the power of science to explore the deepest questions of the universe and humankind’s place and purpose within it. Sir Templeton was an investor and philanthropist who died in 2008.
