Proteomics-Pioneer Matthias Mann receives Ernst Schering Prize 2012
Award Ceremony Ernst Schering Prize
On the 10th of September 2012 the Schering Foundation Berlin will award the Ernst Schering Prize 2012 for internationally leading accomplishments in the area of medical, biological and chemical basic research to Prof. Matthias Mann, director at the Max-Planck-Institute of Biochemistry in Martinsried. He will receive the prize, which carries an award of 50,000 Euro, for his seminal work exploring the proteome – the complete complement of the proteins of an organism. Matthias Mann has revolutionized the methods that are used for the identification and characterization of proteins, by successfully transferring methods of the physical sciences – such as mass spectrometry – to the area of molecular biology.
