  • Dr. Sneha Singh: "Structural and Functional characterization of Human coagulation Factor XII" (working group Prof. Oldenburg)


Due to the still ongoing Corona pandemic, the award ceremony could once again take a place virtually. First, the three prize winners, their supervisors (see above), Dr. Nils Burkhardt (Bayer AG), Prof. Dr. Christa E. Müller (Pharma-Zentrum) and Prof. Dr. Waldemar Kolanus (Limes Institute) met in a small group. The award winners briefly introduced themselves and their work and answered the many interesting questions about their projects. Afterwards, the award ceremony took place in front of a large virtual audience of more than 200 guests. The event was completed by the keynote speech held by Prof. Dr. Hendrik Streeck from Bonn: "Science in the pandemic - between public relations and research" followed by a lively discussion.
