Investors Offer $1 Million For Best Cancer Research Idea
A group of New York investors will award $1 million a year to the person with the best idea in cancer research, and will share the idea worldwide. The Gotham Prize encourages novel thinking in cancer research and will be selected by a panel of scientists from Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, and the Cancer Institute of New Jersey. The first $1 million will be awarded next February.
Organizers will pre-qualify those who submit their ideas to a Web site, which also allows other researchers and scientists visiting the site to build on or collaborate on individual projects. Said Gary Curhan, a medical researcher and physician at Harvard Medical School, and co-creator of the prize, “Even if four or five great ideas come out of this, it will be worth it.”
