Be a Champion of Science

By Seema Kumar

Science impacts our daily lives in every imaginable way. From antibiotics and vaccines, to personalized medicine, wearable devices and 3D printing, science has improved the human condition, leading to longer, healthier, happier lives for people all over the world. But science can also seem complex and shrouded in mystery. It can be hard to make the connection between research in a lab and the impact it has on our everyday lives.

That’s why science needs champions.

Science needs champions to help us understand how research and innovation can create a better future for all of us. To celebrate the heroes of science whose insatiable curiosity and tenacity results in positive impact for society. To make science simple, human.

And the time to champion science is now.

To fuel progress and deliver the next generation of treatments and cures, to help achieve a world without disease, to help all of us live longer and healthier lives, each of us can be a champion of science.

At Johnson & Johnson, we are proud to celebrate and fuel scientific innovation through the work that we do every day, and through supporting programs like The Dr. Paul Janssen Award for Biomedical Research, and Biotechnology Institute’s BioGENEius Challenge, to celebrate today’s pioneers and inspire tomorrow’s leaders.
