Building on the successful 25-year history of the Smith Family Awards Program for Excellence in Biomedical Research, we created the Smith Family Foundation Odyssey Award in 2017 to fuel creativity and innovation in junior investigators in the basic sciences.

The Odyssey Awards support the pursuit of high-impact ideas to generate breakthroughs and drive new directions in biomedical research.

The second cohort (PDF) has now been selected with multi-year funding to awardees at:

  • Boston Children’s Hospital
  • Brandeis University
  • Brigham and Women’s Hospital
  • Harvard Medical School
  • Yale Cancer Center
