The American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI), established in 1908, is one of the nation’s oldest and most respected medical honor societies. The ASCI is dedicated to the advancement of research that extends the understanding and improves the treatment of human diseases, and its members are committed to mentoring future generations of physician-scientists.

Harrington Discovery Institute at University Hospitals in Cleveland, Ohio – part of The Harrington Project for Discovery & Development – is a nonprofit medical institute dedicated to physician-scientists, enabling them to transform breakthrough insights into novel therapies that enhance patient care. The Harrington Project is fueled by more than $300 million in donations and other funding, including $50 million from the Harrington family. Learn more about The Harrington Project.

Together, ASCI and the Harrington Discovery Institute award The Harrington Prize for Innovation in Medicine to an inventive physician-scientist who has helped move science forward with novel research that has potential for clinical application.
