January 14, 2013 | Bio-IT World is announcing a deadline extension for its 2013 Best Practices awards program. In keeping with extensions given in previous years, the 2013 extended deadline is February 11.
“We’re very encouraged by the interest shown already in the 2013 Bio-IT World Best Practices competition,” said Kevin Davies, Ph.D., editor-in-chief of Bio-IT World. “We hope that the deadline extension will allow many groups to wrap up their submissions and give added opportunity for other teams to pull an entry together.”
Established in 2003, this prestigious awards program is designed to recognize outstanding examples of technology and strategic innovation—initiatives and collaborations that manifestly improve some facet of the R&D/drug development/clinical trial process.
The awards attract a broad, international group of life science professionals from academia and industry, drug discovery and clinical, users and vendors 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.
Entries will be accepted in six categories: Research & Drug Discovery; Translational & Personalized Medicine; IT Infrastructure/HPC; Informatics; Knowledge Management; and Clinical & Health-IT. Additional awards—the Editors’ Prize and the Judges’ Award—are also up for grabs.
The 2013 winners will be revealed and honored during the keynote session at the Bio-IT World Conference & Expo, April 9-11, in Boston (www.bio-itworldexpo.com).
