2019 Asian Scientist Lab Tech of the Year award

Deadline: March 15, 2019.

From the ‘MacGyver’ who never fails to comes up with the most ingenious hacks to keep things running, to the life of the lab who not only organizes the yearly lab party but goes the extra mile to help everyone stay motivated and positive, lab techs play an essential role in the scientific ecosystem. However, despite their invaluable contributions, most laboratory technicians remain invisible to all but their immediate colleagues. To celebrate and highlight these unsung heroes, we set up the Asian Scientist Lab Tech of the Year 2019 award.




1. The Asian Scientist Lab Tech of the Year 2019 (“Award”) is open to laboratory technicians who have a minimum of one-year experience working in the field (“Nominees”).

3. All Nominees must reside and work in Singapore. Nominees who cannot produce reasonable evidence of residence or work in Singapore will be disqualified.

I. A S$500 cash prize
