Petri Dishes: From the Immediate Past-Director: October 2019 Issue

A Note From the Immediate Past-Director

This month, the BRI hosted the bi-annual Shark Tank event during which two Brigham researchers each won $50,000 to advance their projects related to the opioid crisis. This seed money was made possible thanks to the generosity and support of the McGraw family and Kathleen Gould, RN, MSN, PhD.
Our Research Connection LIVE Lunch featured the BRIght Futures Finalists, who pitched their presentations to the audience in the hopes of winning the $100,000 prize that will be presented during the reception at Discover Brigham on November 7.
Discover Brigham is one week away! Check out our weekly highlights of sessions and demos and be sure to join us for the keynote speaker, Kyu Rhee, MD, MPP, who will kick off the day at 10:00am. Lastly, please enjoy our research paper of the month!
