Voting is now open for the BRIght Futures Prize!

Three projects. One winner. $100,000.

The 8th annual BRIght Futures Prize Competition features three compelling projects with the potential to solve vexing medical problems. The finalists, all BWH researchers and clinicians, were selected through a rigorous two-step scientific review process. The BRIght Futures Prizes support investigators across the Brigham Research Institute (BRI) as they work to answer provocative questions or solve grand problems in medicine.   

Your vote will help to decide which of this year’s three projects will receive $100,000 towards their research. We will announce the winner at Discover Brigham, an event highlighting and celebrating research at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Discover Brigham will be held on Thursday, November 7 from 10:00am – 6:00pm. Register to attend here.
