Leibniz Prize Winners 1999 - Most Highly Endowed German Promotional Prize For,,Ten Scientists

n Bremen which he accepted. The scientific approach taken by Ekkard Brinksmeier is characterised by the simultaneous consideration of materials and production processes and hence logically by partnership and co-operation with materials engineers, physicists, process engineers and control engineers. In Bremen Ekkard Brinksmeier set up a working group on high-precision engineering with extraordinary success and, in co-operation with chemists, fluid and process engineers, also established a research and demonstration centre for ecological production processes, the ECO Centre. With his work he bridges the gap between knowledge-oriented basic research and industrial application.

Professor Dr. Bernd Bukau (44), Cell Biology, University of Freiburg (DM 3 million)

Bernd Bukau studied biology in Besan?on, Santa Cruz and Constance; he worked as a school teacher before he obtained a doctorate in microbiology from the University of Constance. After doing postdoctoral research in the USA he became head of a project group at the Centre for Molecular Biology in Heidelberg and in 1997 accepted the chair for biochemistry at the University of Freiburg.

In recent years his work has centred on molecular mechanisms of protein folding within the cell, one of the basic issues of molecular biology. His interest is focused on the function and regulation of so-called chaperons which assist and control protein folding. The role of chaperons is particularly important under stress conditions such as thermal shock which leads to faulty protein folding in the cell. Professor Bukau's most recent studies concentrate on the question to what extent and through what mechanisms different chaperon systems co-operate in such cellular folding processes as parts of a functional network.

Professor Dr. Joachim Cuntz (50), Mathematics, University of Münster (DM 1.5 million)

Joachim Cuntz studied mathematics and physics in Heidelberg and Paris and was only 27 when he obtained his doctorate f
