California Life Sciences AssociationCalifornia Life Sciences Association


Each year, CLSA recognizes the achievements and honors excellence of California’s life sciences as it brings together industry leaders for an evening of celebration. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CLSA is pivoting the 2020 program to a digital campaign and virtual event. The campaign will begin on Monday, November 30th and run through Thursday, December 3rd. In place of the typical award categories, we will be sharing stories through short videos. Each day, we will release multiple videos highlighting different stories – patient stories, stories of collaboration and progress, stories of innovation, and more.

For the virtual event on December 3rd, we will have a video reel of stories & progress, a panel discussion with life sciences leaders, and breakout sessions on timely topics.

Registration is now open! All ticket proceeds will be donated to various California non-profit organizations. Visit our registration page to learn more.


We are seeking the help of our community to identify those individuals or companies who have made a true impact over the past year. From inspiring teachers to up-and-comers to industry giants—we need your help!

All categories are now open, submit your nominations today.
