ARIAD Awards & Recognition
Underscoring more than two decades of dedication and hard work, ARIAD and CEO Dr. Harvey Berger have been honored with prestigious business awards, including:

CEO Dr. Harvey Berger founded ARIAD in the early 1990s with the idea, thought virtually impossible at the time, that the right drug could find its way safely through the labyrinth of molecular-communication pathways and destroy a disease from within. He and his collaborators helped map out an alternative way of discovering drugs, focused not on screening millions of compounds, but using cutting-edge computational technology to understand the structure of molecular targets and attack them in the most effective and efficient way possible.
The Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards recognize outstanding entrepreneurs who have founded high-growth companies and who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in their fields.
The American Business Awards (The Stevie Awards) are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the United States are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
