From developing hydrogels for faster wound healing to identifying a new biomarker for neuroblastoma, these forty scientists represent the next generation of big shoulder Chicago scientists working to translate innovation into application, from bench to bedside. Like most of science, those who ultimately benefit from their efforts may still be generations away.


Join us now in saying "Thank You" to these rising stars and our three "Heroes of Medicine" at the 2nd Annual Halo Awards on Saturday, October 12 at the Museum of Science and Industry. Get your tickets now >>
