Each Spring, Emory's Office of Technology Transfer hosts an Annual Celebration of Technology and Innovation. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, there won’t be an in-person event. The 2021 awardees will be announced on July 30th – stay tuned.

As part of the announcement of the 2021 awardees we are highligting the awardees from 2020 where the in-person event was canceled on short notice due to the pandemic. We spoke with a number of award recipients from 2020 in each category about their award.

  • “My family was ecstatic about the news."
  • "... [given] the breadth of work that happens at Emory University [to] be included amongst this group of award recipients.”
  • "It was a plesant surprise."
  • "... giving credit to the team for the hard initial work is critical to encourage other young scientists ..."
