Dear Innovator,

Thank you for registering for the Clinical Trial Innovation Prize. We received many promising solutions to the problem of poor patient accrual to cancer clinical trials, and have read each of these submissions with great interest! Our panel of 6 judges are currently reviewing all submissions, and boy, are they having a tough time choosing the most innovative solution! :)

To make the process slightly easier for them so that they can make well thought decisions, we have decided to extend the timeline a little bit. Below are the new dates for the next steps in the process.

  • Application Review Deadline: July 10, 2015
  • Top Finalists Announced for a Public Vote: July 16, 2015
  • Voting Closes: August 3, 2015
  • Ideation Challenge Winners Announced: August 10, 2015
  • Phase 2/ Implementation Challenge Launches: August 17, 2015

The judges will decide the top finalists by July 10, 2015 which will include the First and Second Prize winners, who will not be identified for the Public Voting process. We will list the top finalists' names and entries in alphabetical order on our website for the Public Voting process scheduled for July 16th. 

Between July 16th and August 3rd, all the top finalists will get an opportunity to publicize their entries to garner maximum votes to win the People's Choice Award worth $5000!! 

On August 10th, we will announce all 3 winners: First Prize, Second Prize and People's Choice Award.

Keep your fingers crossed and chalk up plans for publicizing your entries!

Best wishes,

Guneet Walia
