2020 Sponsors

We couldn’t continue to run The Student Voice Prize essay competition without the help of our generous sponsors.

Without them, there’d be no us!

Get to know our wonderful 2020 sponsors below and check out the incredible work they’re doing in the medical and scientific fields!

Costello Medical works to improve healthcare by providing clients with scientific support in the analysis, interpretation and communication of clinical and health economic data.

The Rare Diseases Division at Costello Medical are dedicated to understanding the unique challenges faced by the rare diseases community, and developing strategies to overcome the difficulties faced when there is little clinical or health economic evidence available, poor understanding and awareness of a rare condition and a need to accelerate access for patients to potentially life-saving drugs.

Their experience supporting the healthcare industry in rare diseases includes working across a wide range of indications including rare oncology, paediatric diseases and genetic conditions.

Fun Fact: Costello Medical created the official new logo, branding and video for The Student Voice Prize on a pro bono basis! For more information please visit their website.
