Essay Challenge: “Reimagine Biomedical Research for a Healthier Future.”

With the goal to accelerate discovery, the Health Research Alliance and PLOS present the Essay Challenge: “Reimagine Biomedical Research for a Healthier Future.”  In addition to cash prizes, winners will be published in PLOS and highlighted in an HRA-hosted webinar. Details can be found here.

The community is encouraged to submit succinct 1500-word essays proposing bold, collaborative, systemic changes that re-commit to serving society and achieving an equitable, diverse, and creative environment for all those working to advance scientific discovery and improve human well-being. The winning essay will be published in either PLOS Biology or PLOS Medicine, and runners up will be published on the PLOS Blogs network  — and there are also cash prizes.

The link to apply, all criteria, context, and eligibility details are provided in the announcement. The deadline for submissions is March 11, 2021.

We look forward to learning about and hopefully implementing ideas that transform how we advance discovery.
