The CARE Awards 2018 winners have been announced!


The 2018 Awards took place April 25 at the Boston Harbor Hotel to celebrate the wealth of innovation, unwavering commitment and passion to make human lives better.

Despite the backdrop of political uncertainty in 2017, the pharma industry continued to persevere and push boundaries. The CARE Awards acknowledged and celebrated a spectrum of key R&D activities that took place throughout last year, ranging from disruptive technology that support both sponsors and patients, to noteworthy clinical trial design and results, as well as showcasing the power of teamwork.

The ceremony was once again hosted by multi-media journalist, Janet Wu, former Anchor and Health Reporter for Boston’s NBC station and adjunct professor at Emerson College.
