Winning Spotlight: The 2020 Incyte Ingenuity Award Program Recipient

Hear directly from Massachusetts General Cancer Center—the inaugural Incyte Ingenuity Award recipient!

2020 award recipient, Areej El-Jawahri, MD, explains her award-winning project and her experience working with GVHD patients.

In September of 2020, Massachusetts General Cancer Center was awarded $100,000 to implement its project, Horizon Mobile App for Patients with Chronic Graft-Versus-Host Disease (GVHD).

This project will develop a patient-centered, multi-component mobile intervention app that aims to improve the quality of life and care of patients with chronic GVHD. The app will consist of an educational game, which will allow a patient character to navigate through a journey as they cope with their chronic GVHD and monitor their progress. The effectiveness of this app will be evaluated via a pilot program, with consideration for a larger expansion.

Horizon Mobile App for Patients with Chronic GVHD was selected by the judges because it embodies the core mission of the Incyte Ingenuity Award program in fostering collaboration with the community to improve the lives of those living with GVHD.

In particular, the judges noted that this project was the most well-developed application with a clear objective and realistic approach to improving the GVHD patient experience.

As the inaugural winner, we look forward to seeing this proposal come to fruition and the positive impact it will have on the GVHD community.
