Max Planck Research awards 2003 presented

"The Max Planck Research Awards are meaningful indicators for the future that reflect the interdisciplinary nature of science and demonstrate its effectiveness internationally", explains Prof. Rdiger Wolfrum, Vice President of the Max Planck Society. The award aims to open the door to opportunities to find the best partners in Germany and abroad for joint research projects thereby allowing the necessary "critical mass" to unfold. This is a decisive requirement in bringing about top research results through long-term and intensive cooperation without scientists having to leave their home university research environment for long residencies.

The Max Planck Research Awards are primarily used to finance short-term research residencies, joint research seminars or workshops as well as the necessary materials, equipment, and personnel. The German Ministry for Education and Research provides the Max Planck Society and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation with the necessary funds for the program that has been in place since 1990.

This year, the ten-member selection committee under the chair of Professor Herbert Walther decided to award the following individuals and projects with the Max Planck Research Award 2003:

The Max Planck Research Award 2003 in the Biosciences /Medicine goes to:

- Prof. Eckart Dieter Gundelfinger from the Department for Neurochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology in Magdeburg for identifying the two "giant proteins" "Bassoon" and "Piccolo", which play a decisive roll in the connection of neural networks, e.g., in the brain.

- Prof. Jrgen Hennig from the Department for Radiology at the University Clinic in Freiburg for developing the RARE technique, which speeds up the imaging process in Magnet Resonance Tomography and makes rapid movements, e.g., in cardiac walls, visible.

- Prof. Gary Lee Westbrook from the Vollum Institute at the Oregon Health
