Background: Bio-IT World announced the 2018 winners of the Best of Show Awards Program to a packed audience at the Bio-IT World Conference & Expo. The awards program recognizes the best of the innovative product solutions for the life sciences industry on display at the Bio-IT World conference in Boston.
“It’s always a treat to explore what’s new in our industry,” said Bio-IT World Editor, Allison Proffitt. “The innovation on display by Bio-IT World exhibitors never disappoints, and we are excited to shine a spotlight on the best life sciences has to offer.”
The Best of Show program relies on a panel of expert judges from academia and industry who screen eligible new products and hear presentations from a list of finalists on site. This year our judges considered 46 new products and viewed presentations on site from 18 finalists.
The judges named winners in six categories this year: Data Integration & Management; Analysis & Data Computing; Genomic Data Services; Data Visualization & Exploration; Storage Infrastructure & Hardware; and the Judges’ Prize. Attendees also voted on the People’s Choice Award, selecting products that they believe measurably improve workflow or capacity, enabling better research.
The 2018 judging panel included Joe Cerro, BostonCIO; Chris Dwan, Bridgeplate; Richard Holland, New Forest Ventures; Eleanor Howe, Diamond Age Data Science; Phillips Kuhl, Cambridge Healthtech Institute; Steve Marshall, Marshall Data Solutions; Michael Miller, Genentech; Art Morales, Analgesic Solutions; Nanguneri Nirmala, Tufts University School of Medicine; Alexander Sherman, Massachusetts General Hospital; Subi Subramanian, Vertex Pharmaceuticals; Bill Van Etten, BioTeam; and Proffitt.
"I couldn't be more proud of the OnRamp team for all the hard work to get us here," says Tim Wesselman, CEO & Founder of OnRamp BioInformatics.
