Who should win the 2014 Stem Cell Person of the Year Award? Who has been the single most important, influential person in the world of stem cells this year? Who has made the biggest positive contribution in 2014?
On Monday, October 1, I will start taking formal nominations for the Stem Cell Person of the Year Award for 2014. This will be the third year of the award.
Who’s your top candidate on your mind now? It’s time to start brainstorming. Post your ideas in the comments or email me.
Past winners received recognition for their outstanding contributions and a $1,000 cash prize.
Last year, the winner was Dr. Elena Cattaneo. I named her Stem Cell Person of the Year 2013 due to her courageous work on behalf of the goal of making the stem cell arena safer for patients and for protecting the reputation of the international stem cell field. In 2012, amazing patient advocate Roman Reed won the award because of his remarkably effective work advancing the cause of the stem cell field.
Who will win in 2014?
When the nominations open on Oct. 1 I will have a surprising announcement about this year’s award.
