Robert Klein has been selected as the Honoree for the 2010 Biotech Humanitarian Award.
BIO established the Biotech Humanitarian Award in 2009 to recognize everyday heroes within the biotechnology community who have helped heal, fuel and feed the planet through their work. In the words of Jim Greenwood, CEO and President of BIO, “BIO is honored to present Bob Klein with the 2010 Biotech Humanitarian Award. His vision and determination to create alternatives to federal funding for stem cell research helped make the State of California a global leader in disease research, giving hope and inspiration to millions of patients and families around the world.”
It was a pleasure to be involved in the judging process, and I look forward to following Klein’s future endeavors.
