Werner Risau throughout his scientific career always had a strong interest in promoting young scientist. He enjoyed teaching and it was easy to pick things up from him, as Werner Risau had the rare gift to boil things down to the essentials and explain complicated concepts or hypothesis with simple words.
Consequently, the Prize Committee decided that The Werner-Risau Prize of the German Society for Cell Biology (DGZ) will be awarded for outstanding studies in endothelial cell biology to young scientists within the first 5 years after obtaining their PhD or MD (except in cases of maternal leave). The Werner Risau Prize will be awarded for an article already published or in press, and consists of a personal diploma and a financial contribution of
€ 4000.-. No other restrictions apply!

Applicants are requested to send a cover letter together with their CV and one copy of the article (electronially plus one hardcopy) to the
