The nominating institution SLAC on the Science Breakthrough:
ChEM-H at Stanford brings together Chemistry, Engineering and Medicine to address long-range challenges in Human health. The institute focuses on molecules, allowing researchers to study human biology at a more fundamental level than cells, thereby paving the way for new tools to cure or prevent disease. Above all, ChEM-H educates a new type of student who will transform healthcare – someone with the eyes of a clinician, the wisdom of a scientist, and the problem-solving skills of an engineer.
