Medix Recognized Among 2021 Northwest Association for Biomedical Research Alvin J. Thompson Award Recipients

(Seattle) August 24, 2021 – Medix, a national organization specialized in workforce solutions and recruiting skilled personnel for clients in the Healthcare, Life Sciences, Engineering & Construction, and Technology industries, was named a recipient of the Northwest Association for Biomedical Research (NWABR) 2021 Alvin J. Thompson Award. 

“When COVID-19 upended life as we know it, the world turned to the research community in hopes of finding a way forward through science,” said Cal McCarthy, Vice President of Life Sciences at Medix. “It’s an honor for our organization to be recognized alongside the region’s biomedical researchers, who are leading the way in epidemiological research, the creation of treatments and the development and trialing of vaccines.” 

The Northwest Association for Biomedical Research is a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening public trust in research. The Alvin J. Thompson Award is awarded annually to reflect the recipient’s high standing in the life science community with engagement in cutting edge research alongside a commitment to ethical research practices.

In 2021, the board of NWABR decided to present its Alvin J. Thompson Award to the entire Biomedical Research community in the northwest region of the United States. This award is being presented in this manner to recognize the pivotal role that researchers and institutions have played as they have focused their efforts on the Coronavirus pandemic.

“Life Sciences has long been a cornerstone of the Medix team. In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, our work in this industry came with a new sense of urgency,” said Medix President & CEO, Andrew Limouris. “This award puts a well-deserved spotlight on the positive impact being made not only by our teammates, talent and clients, but the entire scientific workforce.”
