Medtech and biopharma’s equivalent of the Nobel Peace Prize – the 2022 Prix Galien Awards – is now open for entries.

Organiser, the Galien Foundation, is seeking biopharma and medtech products and innovations which are “making important improvements in the human condition”.

As in the past, judging will be by a preeminent scientific and learned committee, which includes Nobel prize winners, with competition in three categories: Best Pharmaceutical Product; Best Biotechnology Product; and Best Medical Technology Product.

The awards are held on October 27 at The American Museum of Natural History in New York.

Last year innovations from the research and development laboratories of Alcon , Global Blood Therapeutics  and Novartis Pharmaceuticals were among those honnoured.

The mission of the Galien Foundation is to serve as a vehicle for the open exchange of ideas that drive science and new innovations.

Its forum of experts will be held at the Alexandria Center for Life Science on Thursday, October 27, 2022, and will feature round table discussions focusing on critical global healthcare issues and challenges.

The Prix Galien USA Awards, which follow on that evening, were created to honor biomedical research and medical technology products that improve the human condition after they have been approved for marketing and are benefiting patients.
