The Biocom California Life Science Catalyst Awards are an annual celebration of the most inspiring and driven young minds who are sparking meaningful change to human health through their research, discovery and entrepreneurship.
The awards are open to accomplished and up-and-coming academics, entrepreneurs, investors, corporate leaders and business advisers who are making their marks on the Bay Area, San Diego and Los Angeles life science communities before reaching their 40th birthdays.
Winners will be highlighted in the Biocom California LifeLines digital magazine, recognized in a social media campaign and celebrated at the Biocom California Annual Dinner. Winners are also announced in an accompanying news release.
These awards were created by Biocom California in conjunction with the San Diego Venture Group in 2016. A committee of executives and board members from entities select up to 10 winners every year.
