Last week Tom was elected one of 10 “Innovators under 35” by MIT Technology Review Magazine, Germany. The award recognised Tom’s work within TReND in Africa and Open-Labware.net on the development of affordable Open Source Lab equipment using 3D printing and off the shelf electronics. For a flavour of the award ceremony held in Berlin on July 5th 2016, see here.
While the award format only allowed recognition of one person per project, there are of course many people involved. Particular thanks goes to Andre Maia Chagas of Open Neuroscience and Lucia Prieto of TReND as well as many others!
