The International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA) announced this week that the Wyss Institute won the W³ Gold Award in the category of Biotechnology, and Silver Awards in Science, Homepage Design, Visual Appeal, and Web Video: Technology/Science.
The W³ Awards honor outstanding websites, web advertising, videos, and mobile apps created by some of the best interactive agencies, designers, and creators. This year the W³ Awards received more than 3,000 entries from around the world.
