Brigham and Women's Hospital is giving the general public a chance to decide which research projects to support.
Under its Bright Futures Prize, the hospital will award $100,000 to one of three biomedical projects, with the winner to be determined by popular vote.
Projects include "Exploring Genome Sequencing of Newborns," led by Robert Green; "Using Electronic Health Records and Genetics to Personalize the Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis, led by Philip De Jager and Elizabeth Karlson; and "Using Cutting-Edge Technology to Unravel the Mysteries of the Immune System," led by Robert Plenge.
The project that receives the most votes by Nov. 1 will win the $100,000 prize. The winning project will be announced at the Hospital's Research Day on Nov. 15.
