Phenomenex and The Analytical Scientist Introduce International Humanity in Science Award

Torrance, CA (October 2, 2014) – The Humanity in Science Award discovers and celebrates an outstanding breakthrough in analytical science that has truly improved lives. Launched by Phenomenex and The Analytical Scientist, the international award acknowledges the importance of team collaboration in the development of innovation, recognizing cross-institute, cross-company, and cross-border collaborations in addition to the work of one or two individuals. The winning entry will receive $25,000 in prize money.

Analytical science has an enormous impact on our lives, serving to safeguard our food, environment, and medicines and enabling breakthroughs in other scientific disciplines; yet it does not always receive the same recognition and attention awarded to other scientific fields. This new award shines a spotlight on these scientists and celebrates their contributions to the betterment of humankind.
