METRC Team Awarded Clinical Research Forum's Top 10 Clinical Research Achievement Award for 2023


The METRC team has been awarded the prestigious Clinical Research Forum’s Top 10 Clinical Research Achievement Award during the Translational Science conference this year in Vegas. The Top 10 Clinical Research Achievement Awards honor groundbreaking achievements in clinical research from across the nation. The competition seeks to identify major advances in the biomedical field resulting from the nation’s investment in health and welfare. The Top 10 award recipients are selected by a clinical research Forum panel from clinical research studies published in peer-reviewed journals in 2023. They are based on the degree of innovation and novelty involved in the advancement of science; contribution to the understanding of human disease and/or physiology; and potential impact upon the diagnosis, prevention, and/or treatment of disease.

In addition to the Top 10 Clinical Research Achievement Award, the PREVENT CLOT study has been awarded the Distinguished Clinical Research Achievement Award by the Clinical Research Forum. This award is presented to the top studies that demonstrated creativity, innovation, or a novel approach that shows an immediate impact on the health and well-being of patients.

These awards stand as a testament to all the hard work from our study coordinators, clinical sites, and medical professionals who have believed whole-heartily in this project. The METRC team is honored to be made an award recipient and look forward to leveraging this research towards improving outcomes for patients.

Background of award:

The United States invests significantly in biomedical research to enhance national health. However, translating basic research into clinical care faces challenges due to complexity and cost. The Clinical Research Forum acknowledges this issue by annually recognizing ten outstanding clinical research accomplishments in the US, highlighting innovation and impact on human health. These achievements showcase the nation's return on investment in citizen welfare.
