Scientists and the key technologies advancing their research were celebrated at a glitzy awards ceremony held during Neuroscience 2019 in Chicago this week.
The latest in The Scientists’ Choice Awards series, the Digital Marketing & Communications Awards recognize the most engaging, inspiring and innovative content in the field.
Science industry leaders joined online publisher SelectScience® at a special Neuroscience 2019 Awards Champagne Reception, where they also celebrated the Seals of Quality program, designed to further help scientists worldwide choose the best laboratory products to accelerate their work.
Best in Digital Communication Awards were awarded to four overall winners for the following interviews that showcase the work of scientists in the field:
An insightful interview with Dr. John Connolly, CSO of Tessa Therapeutics, exploring next-generation immunotherapy and its application in targeting pediatric high-grade gliomas with the help of ACEA Biosciences’ xCELLigence® Real-Time Cell Analysis Technology.
An article discussing the use of RNAscope technology by Advanced Cell Diagnostics, to research microglia and brain disease, with Dr. Timothy Hammond, Boston Children’s Hospital – ‘The Good, the Bad and the Good that Turns Bad.’
A fascinating Scientists’ Channel® interview with Dr. Aleksandra Dukic, postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Cancer Research, Oslo University Hospital, on novel targets to inhibit Glioblastoma invasion. The video highlights the importance of NuAire, Inc’s cell culture equipment for analysis of patient-derived cells. On winning the award Dukic commented, "It has been great experience to take part in the video interview and moreover exciting to hear that my Scientists' Channel interview won an award.
