Our Purpose

The Sherman Prize recognizes and rewards leading individuals who go above and beyond to make exceptional, pioneering contributions and inspire tomorrow’s innovators in the fight to overcome Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, also known as the inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs).

This annual Prize is the first of its kind to reward health care providers, medical researchers, public health advocates, and educators for outstanding achievements in the areas of IBD medical research, patient care, public service, and professional / public education.

While great progress has been made in fighting IBD, many challenges remain. We believe that by consistently elevating great work and supporting future efforts, we can create a ripple effect that fosters greater advances in the field, and signals to the philanthropic and medical communities that these diseases are high priorities and worthy of significant investment.

We’re proud to be a part of a movement that inspires talented men and women who are working tirelessly on new treatments, approaches to serving patients, and the science that could lead to a cure.

By recognizing achievement, we inspire excellence.
