The Redi Award, granted by the International Society on Toxinology  (IST) was given to Dr. José María Gutiérrez Gutiérrez, senior professor at the Faculty of Microbiology, researcher and deputy director of the Clodomiro Picado Institute (CPI) of the University of Costa Rica, to acknowledge his scientific contributions to this field.

This recognition is given by the IST every three years at the world congress, to a scientist who stands out for his contributions to toxinology, meaning the scientific study of animal, vegetable, and microbial venoms and toxins. The award is named after Francesco Redi, one of the first snake venom researchers.
