Breakthrough Prize Symposium
November 4, 2019

The 2020 Breakthrough Prize laureates have been announced. Read about the amazing scientists being honored on the Breakthrough Prize website.

The Breakthrough Prizes aim to celebrate science and scientists, promote a culture that venerates knowledge, and generate excitement about STEM careers. They are the world’s largest science awards, presented annually at a televised ceremony in Silicon Valley.

The Breakthrough Prize celebration includes a daylong symposium in the three prize fields: physics, life sciences and mathematics. The symposium is co-sponsored by UC Berkeley, Stanford University and UC San Francisco, where this year’s symposium is taking place.
