Research Excellence Awards

The BRI Research Excellence Awards, which promote the research of promising BWH junior investigators and trainees, were established in 2007 with support from a philanthropic gift from the Partners Research Accelerator Program. Originally awarded through a biannual poster competition, since 2012 the awards have been given out at Research Day/Discover Brigham held annually in the fall and are supported by the Brigham Research Institute. Recipients of the Research Excellence Awards receive a $1,000 grant to use for scientific conference travel or for research expenses; 105 awards have been made through this mechanism to this date.
