Champions of Science

cience is everywhere. Science is discovery … opportunity … fun… hope. But science can also seem complex and shrouded in mystery. It can be hard to make the connection between research in a lab and the impact it has on our everyday lives. Through stories and programs that underscore the importance of science to society and its relevance to our everyday lives, we work to make science more relatable and human, and inspire more people to get personally engaged in championing science.

Champions of Science® Storytelling Challenges

Johnson & Johnson launched the Champions of Science Storytelling Challenge to uncover the stories of passionate scientists and innovators who are working to make an impact in their communities around the world.
