Annual Summit

Each Catalyst Award includes travel to an annual Innovator Summit for a chance to further catalyze discovery, innovation, and entrepreneurism. The inaugural Innovator Summit will be held in Washington, DC in summer 2021 and will be attended by approximately 150 awardees.

Through poster presentations and workshops, awardees will present their ideas, discover opportunities to collaborate on current and future projects, meet leaders from across industries who can provide mentorship, share ideas with policy makers and the public, and discuss their innovations with potential investors.

The National Academy of Medicine is currently seeking collaborators to sponsor or contribute to one or more Innovator Summits. If this could be the right opportunity for your organization, please contact to begin the conversation.
