2006 Young Innovators Under 35

The editors of Technology Review have once again selected the TR35, 35 outstanding young innovators under the age of 35. Their work–spanning medicine, computing, nanotechnology, and a lot more–is changing our world.

Since 1999, the editors of Technology Review have honored the young innovators whose inventions and research we find most exciting; today that collection is the TR35, a list of technologists and scientists, all under the age of 35.
