We are pleased to share that "Pioneers in Science," a video produced by the School of Medicine, has been selected as an Official Honoree for the Rich Media: Non-Profit/Educational category in the 15th Annual Webby Awards.
In the video, which we've re-posted above, Carla Shatz, PhD, and Helen Blau, PhD, discuss the courses their paths have taken and reflect on the rewards and challenges of their lives as scientists. Both were two of the first women to be hired on the tenure track in basic science when they came to Stanford in 1978.
Established in 1996, the Webby Awards are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences and recognizes excellence on the Internet including websites, interactive advertising, online film and video and mobile and apps. This year, more than 8,000 entries were submitted to the competition and fewer than 15 percent were determined to be an outstanding caliber of work and distinguished as an Official Honoree.
