LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Enrico Fermi Award awarded to Stafford L. Warren, the inventor of the mammogram and member of the Manhattan will be auctioned by Nate D. Sanders Auctions on April 28, 2022. Interested bidders may participate in the auction online.

The Enrico Fermi Award was presented in 1972 to Stafford L. Warren, the physician and radiologist who invented the mammogram in 1930 and also served on the Manhattan Project as Chief of Medicine, responsible for the safety of the project members. Warren then went on to become the first Dean of the School of Medicine at UCLA in 1947, shepherding the school to one of the most premier medical schools in the world. In 1962, Warren became Vice Chancellor, Health Services at UCLA in 1962.

The Fermi Award, established in 1956 under President Eisenhower, honors scientists from around the world for their lifetime achievements, and is considered one of the most prestigious awards next to the Nobel Prize. In Warren's citation for the Fermi Award, it states that he received the award ''For the imaginative, prescient, and vigorous efforts which made possible the early development of atomic energy so as to assure the protection of man and the environment, and for the establishment of a biomedical research program which has resulted in many substantial applications of ionizing radiation to diagnosis and treatment of disease and to the general welfare.''

Bidding for the Fermi Award begins at $50,000
