On September 24, 2019, the Schering Stiftung awards two sciences prizes for pioneering basic research in medicine, biology and chemistry in Berlin.
The Foundation honors the molecular biologist Patrick Cramer for his research on transcription and gene regulation at the molecular and cellular levels with the 50,000-euro Ernst Schering Prize 2019. The bioinformatician Johannes Köster will be awarded the 10,000-euro Friedmund Neumann Prize 2019 for his contributions to the reproducibility of data analysis and to quality assurance in biomedical research.
Professor Cramer was nominated for the Ernst Schering Prize by Prof. Dr. Thanos Halazonetis from the University of Geneva and Prof. Dr. Peter Rehling from the University Medical Center in Göttingen. Professor Rehling will give the introductory speech at the award ceremony.
Johannes Köster was nominated for the Friedmund Neumann Prize by Prof. Dr. Sven Rahmann, Chair of Genome Informatics at the Institute of Human Genetics of the University of Duisburg-Essen, and laudatory speaker at the award ceremony.
Prof. Dr. Stefan H.E. Kaufmann, Chairman of the Foundation Council of the Schering Stiftung, will present the prizes to both scientists. Prof. Cramer and Dr. Köster will then present their research work in a short lecture.
This year’s award ceremony will be accompanied by musicians of the Komische Oper Berlin. The Dutch mezzo-soprano Maria Fiselier, considered to be one of the most promising new vocalists in Europe and acclaimed for her exceptionally warm and rich voice, will be accompanied by Daniela Braun, first-chair second violinist, and Frank Schulte, solo répétiteur and orchestra pianist at the Komische Oper Berlin.
