Two Max Planck researchers recieve the Louis-Jeantet Prize for Medicine 2003

THE 2003 LOUIS-JEANTET PRIZE encourages further projects of excellence in the prize-winners' laboratories. Wolfgang Baumeister is famous for his work on the proteasome and for further development of cryoelectron tomography, which provides three-dimensional images of intact cells at high resolution and with it new vistas of their supramolecular organization. Riitta Hari is a pioneer of measuring precisely in time and space activation sequences of healthy and diseased human brain during specific tasks. For this she has greatly contributed to the development of magnetoencephalography, a non-invasive technique that detects tiny changes in the magnetic field associated with brain activity. Nikos K. Logothetis made exceptional progress in understanding the perception of visual images by the brain. His goal is to define how different regions of the brain may lie at the root of conscious behaviour. He analyses which neuronal activities are required to attend to an object, to recognise it, to maintain it in memory or to decide to act upon it.

THE LOUIS-JEANTET FOUNDATION FOR MEDICINE awards the three prize-winners a cumulative sum of 1.2 million Euros to carry out their new research projects. In addition each prize-winner receives a personal award of 75'000 Euros.

THE PRIZE-GIVING CEREMONY will take place in Geneva (Switzerland), on Friday April 11th, 2003.

Professor Wolfgang BAUMEISTER
Winner of the 2003 Louis-Jeantet Prize for medicine

Wolfgang Baumeister is the director of the Max-Planck Institute for Biochemistry and head of the Department of Structural Biology in Martinsried near Munich. Wolfgang Baumeister is a citizen of Germany. He was born in 1946.

The architecture of the cell is made of numerous membranes and protein complexes which, until recently, were impossible to visualise at high resolution in three dimensions. Scientists either took two-dimensional images of thin slices by electron microscope or they dis
