2004 Max Planck Research Prize for Martin Vingron and Eugene W. Myers

Prof. Martin Vingron, Director at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin, Germany, and Prof. Eugene W. Myers from the University of California, Berkeley, USA, are the two winners of the 2004 Max Planck Research Prize, worth 750,000 Euros each. The purpose of the international Research Prize awarded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the Max Planck Society is to promote collaboration on cutting-edge research between scientists from Germany and abroad by creating a flexible framework to launch, consolidate or expand international cooperation. The Max Planck Research Prize plays a major role in promoting and shaping the disciplines for which the prize is awarded.

The Max Planck Research Prize for International Cooperation [1] sponsors German and international scientists doing research in particularly promising fields. The focus is on innovative fields that need to be further refined in the German research arena. The award is granted to one scientist working in Germany and one working abroad, both of whom have already been recognized on the international level and from whom continued high-caliber scientific work can be expected in the context of an international cooperation. Funding for the program is provided by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the Max Planck Society and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

The prize is awarded annually in a special sub-field of engineering technology, the natural sciences, life sciences or the humanities. The specific subject is selected jointly by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the Max Planck Society. In 2004, two scientists who specialize in the field of bioinformatics will receive the award:
