About the James Prize in Science and Technology Integration 

The James Prize in Science and Technology Integration is presented annually and carries with it a $50,000 prize. The prize honors outstanding contributions made by researchers who are able to adopt or adapt information or techniques from outside their fields, and thus integrate knowledge from two or more disciplines (e.g., engineering, mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, biomedicine, geosciences, astronomy, or computational sciences) to solve a major contemporary challenge not addressable from a single disciplinary perspective. The prize was established in 2020 by Robert James.

Most Recent Recipients

Allon Klein, Harvard Medical School, and Aviv Regev, Genentech Research and Early Development, the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and Howard Hughes Medical Institute, received the 2021 James Prize in Science and Technology Integration.

Klein and Regev are known for their advancement of molecular biology, engineering, statistics and computer science, and their integrated use in research. Their simultaneous endeavors have resulted in far-reaching acceptance and application of massively-parallel single-cell genomics to investigate the gene expression profiles that define, on an individual cell level, the distinct cell types in metazoan tissues, their developmental trajectories, and disease states.
