CLEVELAND, May 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- National and international nominations are being sought for the 2019 Harrington Prize for Innovation in Medicine

, which honors a physician-scientist who has moved science forward with achievements notable for innovation, creativity and the potential for clinical application. 

The deadline for nominations is August 28, 2018.

Nomination guidelines can be found at: HarringtonDiscovery.org/ThePrize.
