3 Mass. General researchers among recipients of Clinical Research Achievement awards
Date:4/18/2013

Three projects led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) investigators have been named among the Clinical Research Forum's Top 10 Clinical Research Achievements of 2012. The MGH-led teams are being honored for work to develop a system allowing people with paralysis to control computerized equipment via a small device implanted into their brains, for a clinical trial showing that a combination of two targeted treatment drugs significantly delays the development of treatment resistance in a common form of melanoma, and for a new approach to diagnosing hard-to-find chromosomal abnormalities that can provide critically important information.

"There's never been a moment in the history of biology that's more optimistic for spectacular breakthroughs to happen. However, it will require strategic investments at a most difficult time in our history," said William F. Crowley Jr., MD, founder and past chairman of the Clinical Research Forum and director of the MGH Clinical Research Program. "America is a world leader in biomedical research and if we are to retain that leadership role globally, we have to continue making these national investments." The awards are being presented today at the Clinical Research Forum's annual meeting in Washington, D.C.

MGH award recipients are:

  • Leigh Hochberg, MD, PhD, MGH Neurology, for a Nature paper describing how the investigational BrainGate System developed through a continuing collaboration with colleagues at Brown University and the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Providence allowed two patients with paralysis affecting all four limbs to reach for and grasp objects using robotic arms controlled directly by their brain activity. Both study participants have been paralyzed for several years by brainstem strokes. This work is also receiving the Clinical Research Forum's Herbert Pardes Clinical Research Excellence Award as the most outstanding project nominated for this year's Top 10
