uture-oriented field of molecular cell biology.

Nikolaus Pfanner studied medicine at Munich and completed his doctorate in 1985. After postdoctoral positions at Munich and Princeton, he took up a professorship at Freiburg in 1992 and is currently head of the Institute for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Jrgen Soll completed his studies in biochemistry with a doctorate from Hannover in 1981. He worked at the University of California in Berkeley and at the University of Munich's Botanic Institute before accepting professorships in Saarbrcken and Kiel and finally returning to Munich, where he holds the chair for the biochemistry and physiology of plants.

Prof. Dr. Klaus Pfeffer (41), Infection Immunology, University of Dsseldorf (1.55 million euros)
Klaus Pfeffer is among the leading national and international researchers in molecular biology-oriented infection immunology. His work focuses on how the immune system responds after infection with bacterial pathogens. He has made a significant contribution to explaining the biological function of various immune substances in the body (cytokines). He was also involved in developing the method of gene targeting, which led to a fundamental understanding of the immune system. Building on this work, he made important contributions to resolving the problem of organ rejection after transplants. Professor Pfeffer's work is a textbook example of how basic research can lead to a better understanding of infections and new treatments. After gaining his doctorate at the University of Ulm, Klaus Pfeffer took up a post as an assistant at the Technical University of Munich, followed by two years at the Ontario Cancer Institute in Toronto. From 1994 to 1997 he worked as a group leader at the Technical University of Munich, where he gained his habilitation in 1996. In 1997, he accepted a C3 professorship, and since 2002 he has been the director of the Institute for Medical Microbiology at the University of
