Awarded biennially by the National Academy of Engineering and Ohio University, the Fritz J. and Dolores H. Russ Prize recognizes a bioengineering achievement in widespread use that improves the human condition. Established in 1999 by the visionary namesakes of the Russ College of Engineering Technology at Ohio University, the Russ Prize encourages collaboration between the engineering, medical and biological disciplines and professions. In addition to the Hochmairs, the 2015 Russ Prize was awarded to Blake S. Wilson, Graeme M. Clark, and Michael M. Merzenich for engineering cochlear implants that enable the deaf to hear.
