Now in its eighth year, the BRIght Futures Prize competition invites the Brigham community and the public to determine which of three investigators will be awarded $100,000 to support a groundbreaking research project designed to translate scientific discovery into clinical therapies.
Sponsored annually by the Brigham Research Institute (BRI), the BRIght Futures Prize supports Brigham investigators as they work to answer provocative questions or solve vexing problems in medicine. The winner is selected through a public vote, and Brigham faculty, staff and trainees are strongly encouraged to participate and help shape the future of innovation.
The finalists’ novel projects are featured in this special edition of Brigham Bulletin:
- “Training an Immuno-Army to Fight Childhood Brain Cancer”
Natalie Artzi, PhD, Division of Engineering in Medicine
- “One and Done: An Effective Universal Flu Vaccine”
Mahmoud L. Nasr, PhD, RPh, Division of Renal Medicine and Division of Engineering in Medicine
- “Rejection and Infection Detection: A Home Test for Kidney Transplant Recipients”
Leonardo Riella, MD, PhD, Division of Renal Medicine
This year’s BRIght Futures Prize winner will be announced at Discover Brigham on Thursday, Nov. 7. Cast your vote at brightfuturesprize.org.
