Honoring Women in Industrial Biotechnology

The Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), recognized the significant contributions of women in industrial biotechnology and in 2011 created the Women in Industrial Biotechnology group. This group congregates bi-annually to network and hear from industry leading speakers on topics that are relevant to this growing sector.

The Award will honor the unique achievements of Rosalind Franklin, her contributions to the field of biotechnology and will recognize the achievements of women currently excelling in the industrial biotechnology space.

Nominees should be visionaries, exhibit leadership qualities, and have pioneered efforts in industrial biotechnology and related fields, just as Rosalind Franklin did. Applicants should demonstrate significant innovative contributions in a field integral to the advancement of a biobased economy in either industry or academia.
