If there were a Nobel Prize for women’s research, this would be it.

Introducing the Magee Prize, an initiative that will firmly establish the Magee-Womens Movement as a guiding force in the global effort to advance our knowledge of health care. The Magee Prize will recognize and reward breakthrough research that will change the face of humankind. Every year, Magee-Womens Research Institute will award $1 million to the research collaborator that makes the most significant contribution to women’s health research anywhere in the world. The prize is intended to fund collaborative scientific inquiry based on the winning research. Someday, the trans-disciplinary research we support will lead to groundbreaking developments in areas we have not yet imagined. The recipient of the Magee Prize will be honored at an international conference on women’s health research to be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

 

International conference on women’s health research

Bringing the best minds in medicine together in one place. Magee-Womens Research Institute will lead the way in establishing an international conference about women’s health research that will bring the world’s top medical minds together here in Pittsburgh. Our goals for this innovative conference will be to foster collaboration and an exchange of ideas, and to focus our energies on the world’s most pressing issues facing women, children, and men.

As world leaders in women’s health – clinically, at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC, and scientifically, at the Magee-Womens Research Institute – we are uniquely positioned to introduce this new approach on the global stage. As researchers, as physicians – and as mothers and daughters, fathers and sons – we at the Magee-Womens Research Institute are dedicated to the transformation of the science of health research for the good of all humankind. Our work will accelerate the pace of discovery and establish new benchmarks for our colleagues in every aspect of medical care all over the world. We will work to discover new information and translate our research from the bench to the bedside at a pace that ensures the maximum benefit to as many people as possible.

Join with us to have a lasting impact on the cause of women’s health. With your help, we can focus our energy, intelligence, ingenuity, knowledge, and technology on advancing women’s health issues.
