LIFE SCIENCES

The category of Life Sciences awards individuals who are innovative and/or first-movers, working on the cutting edge of their field, including biotechnology. The key is the ability to translate science into business that affects the lives of people and the planet. This includes careers across molecular biology, bio-engineering, medicine, nutrition, and health care (such as drug production, pharmacogenomics, gene therapy, or genetic testing), as well as research and development.
