The Sherman Prize is open to a wide range of high achievers in the fight to overcome Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. We recognize those who demonstrate a lifelong commitment to IBD work, having made significant, noteworthy contributions in the areas listed below. Qualifying candidates have often achieved success in more than one area.

Eligible individuals must live and work in the U.S., having accomplished their greatest achievements in the past decade, with greater emphasis placed on accomplishments in the last few years.

Nominees who are not selected can be nominated again in coming years with a new submission that details up-to-date achievements since the last nomination.
