Selection Process & Recognition

SELECTION PROCESS

Winning studies are selected through a three-step process. The CR Forum’s Board of Directors serve as the selection committee. Herbert Pardes, MD, established and endowed the top prize, so he recuses himself from the selection process. Using the selection criteria outlined below, the committee members review all nominated studies to first identify the top 20; the list is then narrowed to the top 10 and a final review identifies the top 3 winners.

Selection criteria:

  • Degree of innovation and creativity involved and its advancement of the science in a specific area
  • Contribution to the understanding of human disease and/or human physiology
  • Potential impact upon the diagnosis, prevention and/or treatment or increased understanding of the disease state

  • Top 3 winners receive a monetary award:
