The Martin and Carol Macht Research Prize was established in 1993 to recognize outstanding research contributions by an M.D., Ph.D., or M.D./Ph.D. student enrolled in the School of Medicine. The prize was established through an endowment gift from the Machts and their friends. Dr. Martin B. Macht was an undergraduate of Hopkins (B.S. 1939) and received both Ph.D. (1942) and M.D. (1945) degrees from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His graduate work was carried out in the Department of Physiology under Dr. Philip Bard. Dr. Macht was a Trustee of Johns Hopkins University. He is the son of Dr. David Israel Macht, a distinguished member of the pharmacology faculty at Hopkins for many years. Dr. Carol Macht, a Goucher graduate, received both M.A. (1942) and Ph.D. (1945) degrees from Hopkins in the History of Art and Archeology.
