The Robert Feulgen Prize will be awarded for an outstanding achievement in the field of histochemistry. The monetary prize to be awarded is 2,000 EUR + refunded expenses of registration fee and accommodation. The contributions may be either towards the development of new histochemical and cytochemical techniques or in the application of existing technology towards solving important problems in biology and/or medicine. Addressed are scientists working in microscopical sciences (in the widest sense) as well as in biochemistry, cell biology, endocrinology, in situ molecular techniques, and neurosciences. Scientists in their mid-career, typically up to 10 years after obtaining the PhD degree (assistant or associate professor, priv. doz.) are encouraged to apply. The prize is not intended for lifetime contributions.
