The prestigious Ernst Schering Prize annually honors outstanding scientists whose groundbreaking work has yielded new, inspiring models and led to fundamental shifts in biomedical knowledge.
As of now, we invite both established scientists and scientific research institutions and societies to nominate candidates for this prize.
We especially want to honor scientists who, in addition to their top-level research in biology, medicine or chemistry, actively engage in socially relevant debates or have launched initiatives that inspire and support future generations of scientists.
For the nomination criteria, please see the call for nominations, which, together with the necessary nomination forms, you can find in the Download section of our website. We accept nominations for the Ernst Schering Prize 2021 until February 17, 2021.
The prize winner will be selected from among the received nominations by our high-ranking, international selection committee. This year’s committee includes Pico Caroni from the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research and professor of neurobiology at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel; Britta Eickholt, professor of molecular and cellular biochemistry at the Charité; Carl-Henrik Heldin, molecular biologist and cancer researcher at Uppsala University in Sweden and chair of the Nobel Foundation; and Petra Knaus, professor of biochemistry at Freie Universität Berlin and Charité.
The prize has been given annually since 1991. Previous prize winners include Bonnie L. Bassler (Princeton, 2018), Matthias Mann (Martinsried, 2012), Rudolf Jaenisch (Cambridge, 2009), Klaus Rajewski (Berlin, 2008), and Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard (Tübingen, 1993).
We look forward to receiving your nomination!
