ses include the detection of molecular mechanisms and the activity-related development of brain structures. To prove the presence of neuronal activity, she introduced a genetic process which makes specific nerve cells emit a fluorescent protein. Her work stands out particularly with its integrative approach in which the latest molecular biology techniques are combined with systematic physiological approaches.

Born in Romania, Professor Monyer is currently head of the Clinical Neurobiology Department (Abteilung fr Klinische Neurobiologie) at the University of Heidelberg. She also studied medicine there and gained her doctorate on a medical history topic. Positions at Mannheim and Lbeck were followed by a move to Stanford before she returned to Heidelberg and did research at the Centre for Molecular Biology (Zentrum fr Molekulare Biologie) in Heidelberg. After gaining her habilitation in biochemistry in December 1993, she set up her own research group within the scope of a Schilling professorship.

Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Pfanner (47), Biochemistry / Molecular Cell Biology, University of Freiburg/Breisgau (775,000 euros) and Prof. Dr. Jrgen Soll (50), Molecular Cell Biology in Plants, University of Munich (775,000 euros)
Nikolaus Pfanner and Jrgen Soll have made numerous important contributions to our understanding of protein import into the divisions of cells in higher-level organisms. Professor Pfanner discovered a large number of the components required for the protein transport mechanism in mitochondria, so-called "cellular power stations", explained their function and developed comprehensive ideas on the mechanisms of protein transport. His results are to be found in cell biology textbooks.

Professor Soll and his research group leads the way in national and international research on protein imports in chloroplasts. The two scientists complement each other's work excellently and are leading figures in the highly-competitive, f
