For his outstanding research on the role of chaperones in protein folding in living cells Prof. Dr. Franz-Ulrich Hartl is awarded with the Ernst Schering Prize 2016. The 50,000-euro prize is one of the most prestigious German science awards. For her outstanding work on single cell transcriptomics analysis Prof. Dr. Barbara Treutlein is awarded with the Friedmund Neumann Prize 2016. The Schering Stiftung awards the 10,000-euro prize to young scientists who have done outstanding basic research in human biology, organic chemistry or human medicine and who have already developed a distinctive scientific profile since completing their dissertation.
The Prize will be presented to the awardees by Prof. Dr. Johanna Wanka, Federal Minister of Education and Research, at an official ceremony which will take place on September 26th 2016 at Meistersaal/Potsdamer Platz in Berlin.
