Nominations Open for the Inaugural Harrington Prize for Innovation in Medicine

CLEVELAND, April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- National and international nominations are being sought for the inaugural Harrington Prize for Innovation in Medicine, which will honor a medical researcher for notable achievements in innovation, creativity, and potential for clinical application.

The Harrington Prize, which carries a $20,000 honorarium, is the result of collaboration between the American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI), one of the nation's oldest and most respected medical honor societies, and the Harrington Discovery Institute at University Hospitals Case Medical Center. The Harrington Discovery Institute is a national initiative dedicated to physician-scientists, enabling them to transform breakthrough insights into novel therapies that enhance patient care. Both organizations understand the scientific and administrative hurdles that hinder advancement of discovery into medicines that improve human health, and they are eager to highlight those who have navigated the path successfully.

Deadline for nominations is June 28, 2013.
A nomination form can be found at:

A committee composed of members of the ASCI Council and the Harrington Discovery Institute Scientific Advisory Board will review nominations and select the recipient. In addition to the honorarium, the awardee delivers the Harrington Prize Lecture at the 2014 ASCI/AAP Joint Meeting (April 25-27) and publishes a review in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
