GHTC opens call for nominations for 2018 Innovating for Impact Awards

Initiative will honor one research partnership and two Members of Congress who have advanced global health R&D

The Global Health Technologies Coalition (GHTC) has opened nominations for its 2018 Innovating for Impact Awards. Now in its second year, this initiative recognizes the research partnerships and political champions that help transform breakthrough scientific research into lifesaving drugs, diagnostics, vaccines, and other tools for devastating, unmet global health challenges.

Awards will be presented in two categories:

Nominations will be open until August 17, 2018. Awardees will be editorially selected by a committee of leaders from the global health and research communities. Honorees will be celebrated at a recognition dinner in Washington, DC this fall before an audience of policymakers, US government officials, media, and leaders of the global health and medical research communities.

Last year’s awards honored Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) and Congressman Tom Cole (R-OK) for their leadership in advancing global health R&D and the partnership that developed the dapivirine microbicide ring—a woman-centered HIV prevention tool—for its efforts to advance this groundbreaking new technology.
