Welcome to the Lab Heroes Awards™ 2021

Now is your chance to give back to the scientists who make a real difference every day, whether they put in extra effort in the lab, are always supportive of their colleagues or they just make the lab a great place to work!  

Nominations have now closed. Winners will be announced in the week commencing 13th December 2021.

This year we’re introducing three categories for our awards, meaning we’ll be crowning three winners alongside three highly commended entrants for each category.
The categories are:

  • Lab Supporter - the technicians, managers or administrators whose day-to-day work might sometimes go unnoticed, but without whom your lab would fall apart. Tell us about the people who keep you all on track and make sure your lab runs smoothly.
  • Lab Leader - the PIs, supervisors, postdocs or research assistants who provide the inspiration and drive to ensure everyone in your lab achieves their very best. Celebrate the people whose advice and guidance has brought the best out of you and your team this year.
  • Lab Scholar - the PhD, graduate or Masters student in your lab who has impressed you most with their initiative, work ethic and willingness to learn. Shout about the early career life scientists in your lab who are making an impact for all the right reasons.

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

And finally, to be fair to all, the Lab Heroes Awards are not open to friends, family and the general public - only nominations submitted by life science researchers will be considered valid.
