Asian Scientist Lab Tech of the Year 2019
Laboratory technicians (lab techs) play a vital role in our scientific ecosystem. However, despite their contributions, most lab techs remain invisible to all but their immediate colleagues. To celebrate and highlight these unsung heroes, Wildtype Media set up the Asian Scientist Lab Tech of the Year, under its media arm, Asian Scientist Magazine.
With support from Abcam, the inaugural edition received over 216 participating lab techs and principal investigators. 10 winners were announced at the prize giving ceremony with Guest of Honor Sir David Lane, Former Chief Scientist of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR).
