which changed the way anesthesia and critical care are administered,
integrated functional genomic, epigenetic and genetic data to help 
understand how genomes are involved with various diseases and 
disorders, developed a wireless remote temperature monitoring solutionfor vaccine refrigerators in rural areas, and discovered a pacing methodthat enables diagnosis and termination of arrhythmia. The winner in 
the category, Kimberly Shriner, M.D., F.A.C.P. created a global outreachproject that brings Pasadena medical teams to Tanzania where they savelives by educating the people through lectures, workshops and clinics tosustainably relieve diseases such as HIV, parasites and more. “ I think 
that the Rotary Club, their merging of innovation and humanity andengineering and technology is just what we need at this time in theworld…” said Dr. Shriner. 

The Knowledge Sharing category included people or organizationsthat coordinated the growth of 50 early stage companies working totranslate scientific ideas into products for the improvement of health,
quality of life and the environment, communicated the power of NASA’s 
exploration story, did a preliminary design of a human Mars lander,
encouraged and influenced students in elementary school throughhigh school to pursue an interest in STEM through use of robotics, andworked with a Fijian community to develop a clean water infrastructure.
The winner in this category, Denise McCain-Tharnstrom, Ph.D., workedwith a team of volunteers to develop the What I Need (WIN) app, whichis a resource directory for homeless and vulnerable youth. 

Nominees in the Environmental Improvement category interpretedsatellite data to further our understanding of climate and environmentalproblems and developed a solar-powered bio-machine designed toremove CO2 from the air and convert it to fuel or other products,
