Congratulations to Julien Weber from the University of Zurich in Switzerland!
Julien received over 500 votes from colleagues and friends who all appreciate his excellent approach to managing the lab at the Department of Quantitative BioMedecine, University of Zurich.
Julien has won a $1000 research grant and a lab care package.
Proteintech would like to thank everyone for their nominations and participation in the voting campaign. Proteintech offers several awards and travel grants throughout the year, so keep checking back for more exciting contests!
The lab can be a chaotic place. Great lab managers keep the chaos at bay and make sure that science is as efficient as possible in the lab. They are renaissance men and women in charge of budgeting, handling copious administrative responsibilities, writing grants, training new lab members, and on top of all that, making vital contributions to research. This award recognizes those lab managers who go above and beyond the call of duty.
Proteintech is offering a $1000 award and a care package (Award plaque, notebook, pen, commemorative mug and $100 Visa gift card) for the most outstanding lab manager.
All finalists will receive a Kindle.
Nominees must be based in a research laboratory in a university or research institution.
Researchers are invited to nominate a lab manager who has gone above and beyond to support their development in the lab.
Researchers nominating their lab managers are to submit the short nomination form including a 250-word summary explaining why they feel their nominee deserves the award.
October 14 - November 14
Finalist announcement: November 18

“She is always on head over heels to help us with our research, lab supplies, planning and setting protocol…She is like our ‘lab mom’ and highly motivated to do her work. Her eagerness is admirable and contagious where looking at her, we always get motivated to work. Asako visits Japan once in a year for one month to meet her family and I am amazed that she manages our supplies from there, in spite of being on vacation. Our team is amazed by her diligent and efficient performance. She is pillar of our lab and I highly recommend her for this award.”
- Sunetra (Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia)
“She continually grows her skills, and relishes learning like it’s going out of style: she takes every chance she can to learn new coding techniques, new approaches to management, new things about psychology, and new ways of thinking about science. On a lab manager 1-10 scale, she’s 11+ and going further off-scale every day.”
- James (Stanford University)
“He deserves this award because next to all the chocolates he receives from the colleagues, this award would really show him how valuable he is! Why so many chocolates? Well, this is for him always being available in different levels. During working hours, he is always available, if a problem shows up on the weekend, Julien can save the day. He takes care of our work with amazing focus and precision. Long story short, Julien is the best lab manager I ever encountered and we think ourselves extremely lucky to have him in our team!”
- Laura (University of Zurich)
“Dallas manages nine labs in our center and does so with pride and a great attitude. Dallas has lead the initiative to get our equipment inventory tracking, ordering, servicing and use streamlined. She has also been a tremendous help in keeping up with the center's space allocation to ensure that space is properly allocated based on current need in order for all labs to operate as efficiently as possible. Our center will welcome our 10th faculty member and Dallas has been, and will continue to be, instrumental in getting this new PI's lab set up.”
- Bahar (Johns Hopkins University)
“Edie always goes above and beyond to ensure that everything is stocked, organized, and running smoothly even in a lab of our size (>40 core scientists!)…Edie's dedication escapes words and can only be demonstrated by example: multiple times she has driven out of state in the middle of the day to obtain developer reagents directly from a supplier so that the lab can continue to operate on the weekend or over holidays. We are truly lucky to have her!”
- Max (Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research)
