Elizabeth Holmes (USA)

Finalist for the European Inventor Award 2015

Category: Non-European Countries

Invention: Simplified blood-testing system

Important note: The nomination of Elizabeth Holmes for the European Inventor Award was put forward in 2014, and her selection as a finalist announced in April 2015. The nomination itself and material produced about Ms Holmes were based on the information available at that time. Serious concerns about the technology and its purported benefits surfaced afterwards, and in January 2022 Ms Holmes was found guilty of defrauding investors in a US court.
