The Marathon bombings in 2013 were heartbreaking for all of Boston. But, as one family learned in the aftermath, hope can emerge from even the most horrific tragedy. The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Fund was established by the Reny family to fuel innovative trauma research and clinical care for patients with traumatic, athletic, military, and disease-related limb injuries. The Stepping Strong Innovator Awards is one of three program areas funded by Stepping Strong.
Starting August 7, the public will have the opportunity to decide, via an online vote, who will be awarded a $100,000 Stepping Strong Innovator Award grant to fund a deserving research project. Three Brigham and Women’s Hospital finalists—Omid Farokhzad, MD, from the Department of Anesthesiology, Bohdan Pomahac, MD, from the Department of Plastic Surgery, and Su-Ryon Shin, PhD, from the Department of Medicine, are competing head-to-head in a public competition.
