It's time for the IN VIVO Blog's Fifth Annual Deal of the Year! competition. We're once again presenting awards in three categories to highlight the most interesting and creative deal making solutions of the year. The categories are M&A Deal of the Year, Alliance Deal of the Year, and Exit/Financing Deal of the Year. We'll supply a half dozen nominations in each category throughout December and you, the voting public, will decide the winners by voting early and often, commencing once we've announced all the nominees. Strap yourselves in, it's The Race for the Roger™.

Harvard University genetics professor George Church, and the University of California, San Francisco pharmaceutical sciences professor James Wells are co-founders.
