At Johnson & Johnson Innovation our goal is to improve the health and wellness of people around the world. While science impacts our daily lives in countless ways, many do not appreciate the value that scientific innovation brings to society, and how it permeates our everyday lives. As champions of science, we aim to raise awareness and foster dialogue around the impact of scientific innovation and its role in our society. To that end, Johnson & Johnson Innovation is looking for individuals or teams with the best ideas, technologies, or solutions to re-imagine the lab coat of the future.
