Unparalleled. Transformational. Progressive. Inspiring. These words only begin to describe the magnitude of the Magee Prize. … an astounding $1 million award to advance scientific discovery in the field of women’s health.
With research as the engine, and the Magee Prize as the fuel, there is no limit to scientific pursuit in the health of humankind.
The Magee Prize will recognize and reward breakthrough research being conducted by top scientists from around the world who are focused exclusively on women’s health. The winners of the prize will be selected based on innovative and collaborative research in disciplines including personalized medicine, early human development, and gender-based biology. It will be awarded to the collaborative team that makes the most significant contribution to women’s health research. This team must be comprised of at least one researcher who is a faculty member of MWRI in Pittsburgh and at least one researcher who is a faculty member of a higher education, public, private or government research institution outside of Pittsburgh, anywhere in the world.
The recipient of the Magee Prize will be honored at Magee’s Magee-Womens Research Summit October 9-10, 2018, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
