RTI Health Solutions Researchers Recognized at Authors' Awards Dinner

Share on: 

At the 16th annual RTI Authors' Awards Dinner held this month, RTI Health Solutions researchers were recognized for their research publishing achievements.

“Researchers publish as validation of years of training and recognition for contributions to their fields,” said Wayne Holden, President, and Chief Executive Officer, RTI International. “The volume of staff members that we are recognizing with these awards speaks highly of your commitment to and motivation toward scientific stature.”

The Authors’ Awards Program was established by the RTI Fellows to recognize research staff members who excel in publishing their research in peer-reviewed journals, books, and other highly visible media. 

Award Criteria and Categories

The Authors’ Awards comprise eight categories, with several staff members receiving an award in more than one category:
