The winners are being chosen by UC students, faculty and staff. You can make your vote for a winner on the QB3 Facebook Page.
The ceremony will include five-minute talks by each of the five finalists, a keynote with Steve Beckwith, Vice-President for Research and Graduate Studies at the University of California, Office of the President, and the award presentation by Matthew Hudes, the U.S. Managing Principal for Biotechnology at Deloitte.
