Laureates to be recognized by Research and Academic Leaders at Awards Ceremony on December 1st in Moscow
Moscow (Nov 17th, 2016) —The organizers of Prix Galien Russia have today released the nominees for the third edition of the Awards.
The Prix Galien Russia Committee (or Jury) comprises 15 renowned leaders in biomedical research and academia and is responsible for evaluating nominees based on scientific files. Laureates will be honored at the Prix Galien Russia Awards Ceremony at Volkhonka Mansion, on the 1st of December 2016
The Prix Galien Russia Committee designates a laureate in 6 different categories by evaluating scientific applications files submitted by the candidates based solely on two questions:
- What was innovative in the course of this product’s or research program’s scientific development, application and/or clinical utility?
- What was learned for the future of biomedical science from this product’s introduction to the clinic or from the research program?
Frederic Boucheseiche, General Secretary of Prix Galien Russia, reiterated the uniqueness and importance of Prix Galien by emphasizing the fact that the Jury’s decision is based only on scientific and medical criteria, that marketing and commercial considerations never enter into the Jury’s decision, and by restating that pharmaceutical companies cannot sponsor the event.
“Organizing an awards ceremony under such strict principles is extremely challenging, but this is the condition that guarantees the impartiality of the jury’s decision. Prix Galien Russia uses the same strict criteria as in all other countries where the award is held, making its legitimacy indisputable.” Frederic Boucheseiche.
