This February, STAT published our first STATUS List. This annual project aims to be the most definitive accounting of important and impactful individuals in health, medicine, and science. There has never been a better time to recognize standout individuals in the life sciences. Although there are countless contenders to choose from, we selected just 46 — an homage to the number of chromosomes in human DNA. Some are well-known as changemakers; others are largely unheralded heroes. But all have compelling stories to tell. Now, in our STATUS List Spotlight series, you’ll hear from four of these individuals. Understand their stories, and join to ask them questions about their work, and their own journeys to change health and medicine.
