The Lab Heroes Awards 2018 is intended as an opportunity to give back to the scientists who make a "positive impact on the everyday", whether they go the extra mile in the lab, are always supporting their colleagues or have produced great results through their work.
"Mariangela Panniello should win because she always keeps an eye out for all the lab members, to help them with their science and personally to cheer them up! Not only is she a rigorous and determined scientist, she is a great teacher and takes part in numerous outreach programs. A true unsung hero!"
The winner and runners up will be announced soon after Monday 3 December 2018.
