University Hospitals Case Medical Center's Harrington Discovery Institute Launches Grant Program to Accelerate Drug Discovery and Development
Date:5/1/2012

CLEVELAND, May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- University Hospitals Case Medical Center's Harrington Discovery Institute has announced a grant competition that serves as a nationwide search for physician-scientists seeking support to accelerate their promising drug discoveries into novel treatments for patients. The Harrington Scholar-Innovator grants will create a bold new pathway for these researchers, who are inspired by their patients, to discover and create novel therapies.

Lacking government and investor funding and partnerships with pharmaceutical companies, many researchers have drug discoveries that are unable to advance into clinical development. 

Aimed at addressing this critical issue, the UH Harrington Discovery Institute, launched in February, is the not-for-profit academic medical engine of The Harrington Discovery and Development Project: a first-of-its-kind, $250 million initiative that also includes a mission-aligned, for-profit development company. Aligning these entities for the first time at an academic medical center provides a comprehensive model to advance discoveries into development and to create novel drugs and therapies for patient care.

"This is an important step forward for our exciting initiative, which is to create a new model for drug discovery and development in academia," says the Institute's Director, Jonathan Stamler, MD. "Supporting physician-scientists through the Harrington Scholar-Innovator grants in their early research will address the funding and expertise gaps that exist, thereby helping these researchers to move their clinical discoveries forward."The annual grant competition, run by UH Harrington Discovery Institute, will offer to support the translation of research from laboratory to early development stages. Up to ten physician-scientists each year will be supported with Harrington Scholar-Innovator grants of up to $200,000 over two years. Guiding the selection of the grant winners are seven
