Mission Statement

Read about past SLAS Innovation Award winners here

The SLAS Innovation Award is a $10,000 cash prize recognizing the work behind that one unique and special podium presentation at the SLAS Annual Conference that proves to be exceedingly innovative and contributes to the exploration of technologies in the laboratory, exceeds a benchmark or milestone in screening or the lead discovery process, or demonstrates an advanced and integrated use of mature technologies.

While this year's deadline has passed, it's not too early to start thinking about how to get involved in next year's competition. View the complete SLAS Innovation Award presentation, judging and scoring details here.
