This award, given by the family and friends of Dr. Netter, provides financial aid to students in the graduate program of medical and biological illustration. The 2017 winner of the Frank Netter Scholarship is Lauren Rakes. Congratulations, Lauren! The Scholarship Fund recognizes Frank F. Netter’s legacy to medical art; his insistence on thoroughly understanding the subject matter and his high artistic standards. For many decades Frank Netter’s name has been synonymous with medical illustration. Doctors, medical students, health-care providers, and curious patients have looked through copies of the CIBA Clinical Symposia for Netter’s illustrations providing sought-after information.

New advances in medicine and technology challenge current illustrators to continue to explore innovative ways to communicate the medical sciences. Frank Netter lives on as an educator in the medical sciences and an inspiration to students developing the skills of medical illustrator.
