The BINDER Innovation Prize is founded by BINDER GmbH in Tuttlingen and awarded by the German Society for Cell Biology (DGZ).

It is endowed with € 4,000 and was awarded the first time in 1998.

The award is given for outstanding cell biological research with a focus on cell culture or the use of cell cultures. Candidates may apply for the prize themselves. DGZ membership is desired but not required. Applications have to consist of a cover letter, CV and a research profile. Applications will be reviewed by an independent commission of the DGZ.

Please send your application by e-mail (and in parallel one hard copy by mail) to the DGZ office: dgz@dkfz.de Deutsche Gesellschaft für Zellbiologie e.V. (DGZ) Sekretariat, z.H. Frau Reichel-Klingmann c/o Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum Im Neuenheimer Feld 280 69120 Heidelberg, Germany

WALTHER FLEMMING AWARD 2018

The German Society for Cell Biology offers a research award named after Walther Flemming, one of the pioneers of cell biological research. In 1875 he provided us with a detailed description of processes during cell division, which he named mitosis.

The Walther Flemming Award is awarded annually for outstanding scientific merits from all fields of cell biological research. Eligible are researchers up to an age of 38 years. The award consists of a prize money of € 2,000 and is sponsored by the European Journal of Cell Biology.

Applications have to consist of a cover letter, a CV and a list of publications. The subject of the application should relate to one distinct field of research. In addition, a short summary of the work and a compelling description of the importance of the work for cell biology should be presented. Both individual applications and nominations are accepted. Applications will be reviewed by an independent commission of the DGZ.

Please send your application by e-mail (and in parallel one hard copy by mail) to the DGZ office: dgz@dkfz.de Deutsche Gesellschaft für Zellbiologie e.V. (DGZ) Sekretariat, z.H. Frau Reichel-Klingmann c/o Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum Im Neuenheimer Feld 280 69120 Heidelberg, Germany
