Hello Bio Lab Heroes Awards™ 2021 Are Now Open, Celebrating Life Scientists Worldwide

08 Nov 2021

Lab Heroes Awards 2021Nominations for the fifth annual Hello Bio Lab Heroes AwardsTM 2021 are now open giving Life Scientists the chance to celebrate those making a real difference – to their colleagues in the lab, field of research, or issues impacting scientists globally.

Last year, the Lab Heroes AwardsTM received nearly 500 nominations for 71 life scientists working in labs all over the world.

Our popular Lab Heroes Awards are back for 2021 - a chance for scientists to celebrate anyone in their lab that makes a difference to them - lab technicians, PI's, PhD students, postdocs - anyone is eligible. They might be scientists who are amazing mentors, who support or inspire their colleagues, or maybe bring something special to the lab - humour, creativity or joy perhaps  - making it a great place to work. Steve Roome, Managing Director, Hello Bio

Nominations can be in one of three categories, with a winner selected from each category:

  • Lab Supporter (eg. lab technicians, managers or administrators)
  • Lab Leader (eg. PIs, supervisors, postdocs, research assistants)
  • Lab Scholar (eg. graduate students, PhD students, Masters students)

The three winners of the Lab Heroes Awards 2021 will each receive $1000 Hello Bio vouchers, a $1000 career development grant, and publicity for them and their lab. 

Being recognized as an important part of someone else’s lab work, being praised as a good colleague and mentor has been incredibly gratifying. Things like advising and tutoring are rarely acknowledged in scientific papers but are extremely important for shaping a scientist. I will forever be grateful to all the people on my path, both who have advised and mentored me, and those who came and asked questions. Science is a team sport, and it requires good relationships and strong collaborations. Hello Bio, apart from being a great company for life science products, has dedicated a great part of their time to strengthening and supporting scientists through their blog, interviews and podcasts.The nomination for Hello Bio’s Lab Hero award is one of the great ways to show how grateful you are to those who are stepping before you and leading the way but are always ready to turn back and hold a hand for you. As a Lab Hero 2020 winner, I can only sincerely recommend that you show your heroes that you see what they do and appreciate it. It is a bigger reward than any money. Dr. Katarina Ilić, winner of Lab Heroes AwardsTM 2020
