This year’s awardee of the Carl Zeiss Lecture, the most visible prize of the German Society for Cell Biology (DGZ), is Anthony A. Hyman, director at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG) in Dresden. At the MPI-CBG 500 curiosity-driven scientists from over 50 countries do pioneering basic research on how cells form tissues. Research programs span multiple scales of magnitude – from molecular assemblies to organelles, cells, tissues, organs, and organisms.
The Carl Zeiss Lecture is scheduled for September 27th in Tübingen during the fall conference of the German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM) and the DGZ.
Anthony Hyman receives this award for his visions in Cell Biology, always looking for new ideas and new approaches to push them forward. He is a leader and an example for young researchers, stimulating and inspiring, enabling careers for his fellows .
