The Arrigo Recordati International Prize for Scientific Research was established in 2000 in memory of the Italian pharmaceutical entrepreneur Arrigo Recordati and aims to promote scientific research in the field of cardiovascular disease.
The sixth edition of the International Prize in 2011 will be awarded to a clinical or basic science investigator who, through his/her work, has achieved distinction in the field of Prenatal Congenital Heart Disease.
More than 200 International Societies and Associations have been invited to choose the candidates that they feel merit the award and are not affiliated with a pharmaceutical or medical device company. A panel of world-renowned cardiologists will select the winner among the nominations received. The 2011 jury members are: André Bozio (Chairman of the Jury), Klaus G. Schmidt and Gurleen Sharland (Jury members), who have provided leadership throughout their long careers in the field of cardiology.
The Prize awards every other year 100.000 Euro to the winner.
The winner of the Prize will be announced during the award ceremony and will deliver a presentation of his work and research that allowed him/her to be chosen for this prestigious Prize.
