Shared Health Research Information Network (SHRINE) Prize Opportunity
The Harvard Catalyst Biomedical Informatics Program sponsored this prize opportunity to encourage and support the use of the Shared Health Research Information Network (SHRINE). Applicants were required to perform and then describe a set of innovative SHRINE queries that illuminated interesting population-level phenomena or that set the stage for subsequent large-scale clinical experiments based on SHRINE query results. Winners of these prizes were eligible to later apply for $50,000 one-year research grants to support efforts to secure patient-level data based on SHRINE results.
This funding opportunity, which awarded nineteen $2,500 prizes, was open to any faculty member holding a Harvard Medical School faculty appointment at one of the SHRINE participating hospitals.
Funding decisions for the SHRINE Prizes were announced in June 2012.
