Ernst Schering Prize

The 50,000-euro Ernst Schering Prize is one of the most prestigious German science awards. Established by the Ernst Schering Research Foundation in 1991, it has been given annually by the Ernst Schering Foundation since 2003. It honors scientists worldwide whose pioneering research has yielded new, inspiring models or led to fundamental shifts in biomedical knowledge.

The prize is named for the German apothecary Ernst Christian Friedrich Schering (1824-1889), whose establishment of the chemical factory “Chemische Fabrik Ernst Schering” laid the foundations for Schering AG, Berlin.

The prize is awarded annually. The prize winner will be selected by a high-ranking jury:

Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Stefan H.E. Kaufmann, Managing Director of the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology (Chairman)

Prof. Dr. Fiona Doetsch, Professor at the Biocenter of the Basel University

Prof. Dr. Carl-Henrik Heldin, Director of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, Uppsala University

Prof. Dr. Bernard Meunier, President of the French Academy of Sciences, Paris

Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Hartmut Michel, Director at the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics, Frankfurt/Main, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry 1988

Prof. Constance Scharff, PhD, Professor at the Institute of Biology at Freie Universität Berlin
