Dr. John Finer was awarded the 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society for In Vitro Biology earlier this month. The Society for In Vitro Biology Lifetime Achievement award, established in 1989, was created in order to recognize outstanding late-career scientists who have made significant contributions to the field of in vitro biology and/or in the development of novel technologies that have advanced in vitro biology.
