The ABRF Award for Outstanding Contributions to Biomolecular Technologies

Technology is a driving force behind scientific advancements. As new approaches to investigating the natural world are conceived, developed, and implemented, new possibilities emerge -- opening doors that otherwise would have remained locked. The ABRF Award recognizes those pioneers responsible for developing powerful new tools that form the foundation upon which the modern biomolecular research enterprise thrives. The award is presented at the ABRF Annual Meeting.
