DBMR Technician of the Year Award

Technicians do not always get the recognition they deserve. The DBMR wants to help you recognise their work by nominating one of your fellow technicians for an award. The DBMR Technician of the Year Award enables the DBMR community to recognise and celebrate the skills and experience of the technical staff and their contribution to the biomedical research. The 1’000 CHF award (before taxes) recognises technicians who are applying professional technical knowledge and expertise, making a positive impact and inspiring others, demonstrating leadership and collaboration, and delivering innovation and efficiency.
