$45,000 Life Science Awards. Call for entries (hurry!).

The Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce are accepting nominations for the 2009 Life Science Awards now through January 12, 2009. Relatively simple online nomination process. Certainly worth the 15 minutes it takes to complete and submit the nomination. (Full disclosure: the Foundation hires me to research and recommend worthy candidates for its Homeland Security Awards. Stay tuned for that “call for nominations!”)
