Help us honor the life sciences training leaders and innovators. We are rolling out the red carpet at this year’s awards ceremony and announcing the winners on center stage.

Keynote Col. Nicole Malachowski (USAF, Ret.)

A 21-year veteran of the United States Air Force, Colonel Nicole Malachowski (USAF, Ret.) wanted to fly military jets from the moment she saw them at her first air show when she was five years old. She achieved that goal – and then some. A leader, a combat veteran, the first woman pilot on the Thunderbirds Air Demonstration Squadron, an instructor, a White House Fellow, and an inductee into the Women in Aviation International Pioneer Hall of Fame, Nicole’s Air Force career exceeded her wildest dreams.

Col. Malachowki will her experience facing overwhelming challenges and adversity and how she rose above. When Nicole’s distinguished military career was cut short by a neurological tick-borne illness that, at its worst, left her unable to walk safely or speak intelligibly, she overcame those challenges, as well.
