These are the scientists, researchers, thinkers, and culture changers challenging the status quo. From laboratories to production, from concept and cultivation, these are the individuals literally changing worlds and changing lives. And with their leadership, all of this is happening right here in Rhode Island.” States the Tech Collective’s website.

Each winning scientist will have a video profile produced and showcased at the Rhode Island Bioscience Awards Celebration on Thursday, May 2nd, 2013 at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet, compliments of the Tech Collective.
