For her outstanding research in the field of regeneration biology Prof. Dr. Elly Tanaka is awarded with the Ernst Schering Prize. The 50,000-euro prize is one of the most prestigious German science awards. For her outstanding work on neuroinflammation Dr. Ivana Nikić-Spiegel is awarded with the Friedmund Neumann Prize 2017. 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. Martin Grötschel, President of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, at an official ceremony which will take place on September 25th 2017 in the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Berlin. On the occasion of the award ceremony, both awardees will present their research.
Prof. Dr. Maria Leptin, director of the European Molecular Biology Organization in Heidelberg, will give the presentation speech to Prof. Tanaka. Dr. Edward Lemke, group leader at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg will give the presentation speech to Dr. Nikić-Spiegel halten.
The award ceremony features a musical performance by the “STEGREIF.orchester”. It is the only improvised symphony orchestra worldwide, consisting of 24 young musicians who want to revolutionize classical music. Breaking away from strict conventions, they use neither sheet music nor a conductor. The resulting freedom facilitates spontaneity, improvisation, and movement. Each production is based on a classical symphony which is combined with different musical styles such as jazz, folk or techno. The “STEGREIF.orchester” thus creates a completely new sound experience, which is supported by an expressive choreography. www.stegreif-orchester.de

“Elly Tanaka is a uniquely creative and independent-minded scientist. Thanks to her, we have groundbreaking insights into the regeneration capacity of organs and tissues, which were facilitated through her original application of cutting-edge analytical methods using a classic test animal, the axolotl.”
“Ivana Nikić-Spiegel’s research helps us understand the pathology of multiple sclerosis, from the molecular all the way to the physiological and medically relevant levels. At the same time, she has the unique ability to develop and apply new and groundbreaking tools of chemical biology. This makes her research truly cutting-edge and internationally outstanding,”
