On November 15, BWH will host a day-long celebration of research at the hospital. The event features a breakfast hosted by hospital leaders, a poster session, and a keynote speech by well-known BWH physician and writer Atul Gawande, MD, MPH.

The day will culminate in an awards ceremony during which the first BRIght Futures Prize winner will be announced and receive $100,000. The three finalists for the award have been whittled down after six weeks of voting. The three final projects are:

  • "Exploring Genome Sequencing of Newborns"
  • "Using Electronic Health Records and Genetics to Personalize the Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis"
  • "Using Cutting-Edge Technology to Unravel the Mysteries of the Immune System"
