October 10, 2011 | The 2012 Bio-IT World Best Practices competition has released its call for entries. Since 2003, Bio-IT World's Best Practices competition has been recognizing outstanding examples of technology and strategic innovation initiatives across the drug discovery enterprise.
The deadline for entry is January 13, 2012, and the early bird deadline is December 16, 2011.
The awards attract an elite group of life science professionals: executives, entrepreneurs, innovators, researchers and clinicians responsible for developing and implementing innovative solutions for streamlining the drug development and clinical trial process. Bio-IT World's distinguished peer-review panel of judges has reviewed more than 400 entries in the program's history.
Last year’s winners included Merck, Novartis, GlaxoSmithKline, CliniWorks, Collaborative Drug Discovery, and Oxford Nanopore Technologies and were featured in the July/August 2011 issue of Bio-IT World.
Entries will be accepted in six categories: Clinical & Health-IT; IT infrastructure/HPC; Informatics; Knowledge Management; Research & Drug Discovery; and Personalized & Translational Medicine.
The 2012 winners will receive a unique crystal award to be presented at the Bio-IT World Conference & Expo in Boston, April 24-26, 2012. Winners and entrants will also be featured in Bio-IT World.
