Helmholtz awards research prizes and flexible research stays

28.06.2013
The Helmholtz Association has awarded the Helmholtz International Fellow Award to 13 outstanding researchers. In addition to receiving funding of €20,000 each, the researchers are also invited to conduct research at one or more Helmholtz Centres. The timing of their research is flexible. The Helmholtz International Fellow Award honours excellent research and helps to establish new cooperation structures with international research institutions.

“We award the Helmholtz International Fellow Awards to researchers who have made an outstanding contribution to our research fields,” says Jürgen Mlynek, President of the Helmholtz Association.

“We also aim to work with the best minds in science in order to pool our expertise and thus accelerate the search for solutions to the major challenges of our day.” Through their work, the Helmholtz Fellows also act as ambassadors for the Helmholtz Association.

The award is not aimed only at researchers – it is also awarded to science managers based outside Germany who have excelled in fields relevant to the Helmholtz Association. Candidates must be nominated for the award by a Helmholtz Centre working in the same research field as the respective candidates. The quality of the candidates’ research is the most important criterion for the award. Nominations may be made at any time. The Helmholtz Executive Committee selects the award winners.
The following researchers have received a Helmholtz International Fellow Award:

Prof. Chen Hesheng, Director of the Beijing Electron Positron Collider National Laboratory, Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (China), nominated by Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY

Prof. Varda Rotter, Director of the Women’s Health Research Center at the Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel), nominated by the German Cancer Research Center

Prof. Dani Or, Professor at the Institute of Terrestrial Ecosystems at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (Switzerland), nominated by Forschungszentrum Jülich

Prof. Andrew A. Maudsley, Professor at the Department of Radiology at the University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine and Director of MR Research (USA), nominated by Forschungszentrum Jülich

Prof. Alexandra Czyrska-Filemonowicz, Director of the International Centre of Electron Microscopy for Materials Science at the AGH University of Science and Technology Kraków (Poland), nominated by Forschungszentrum Jülich

Prof. Yu Yuehui, Vice Director of the Shanghai Institute of Microsystem and Information Technology at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (China), nominated by Forschungszentrum Jülich

Prof. Craig Manning, Professor at the Department of Earth and Space Sciences at the University of California (USA), nominated by the Helmholtz Centre Potsdam ‒ German Research Centre for Geosciences – GFZ

Prof. Valerie Mizrahi, Director of the Institute of Infectious Disease and Molecular Medicine at the University of Cape Town (South Africa), nominated by the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research

Prof. Pascale Cossart, Professeur Classe Exceptionnelle at the Institut Pasteur (France), nominated by the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research

Dr Emmanuelle Tsitrone, scientific advisor for fusion to the High Commissioner of CEA (France), nominated by the Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik

Prof. Zev Levin, Professor Emeritus at Tel Aviv University (Israel) and Professor at the Cyprus Institute (Cyprus), nominated by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)

Prof. Yehudit Bergman, Professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem Medical School (Israel), nominated by the Max Delbruck Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) Berlin-Buch

Prof. Yoram Rubin, Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California (USA), nominated by the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ
The Helmholtz Association contributes to solving major challenges facing society, science and the economy with top scientific achievements in six research fields: Energy; Earth and Environment; Health; Key Technologies; Structure of Matter; and Aeronautics, Space and Transport. With just under 34,000 employees in 18 research centres and an annual budget of approximately €3.4 billion, the Helmholtz Association is Germany’s largest scientific organisation. Its work follows in the tradition of the great natural scientist Hermann von Helmholtz (1821-1894).

Im Focus: Bauplan eines bakteriellen Kraftwerks entschlüsselt

Wissenschaftler der Universität Würzburg und der Universität Freiburg gelang es die komplexe molekulare Struktur des bakteriellen Enzyms Cytochrom-bd-Oxidase zu entschlüsseln. Da Menschen diesen Typ der Oxidase nicht besitzen, könnte dieses Enzym ein interessantes Ziel für neuartige Antibiotika sein.

Im Focus: New Pitt research finds carbon nanotubes show a love/hate relationship with water

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are valuable for a wide variety of applications. Made of graphene sheets rolled into tubes 10,000 times smaller than a human hair, CNTs have an exceptional strength-to-mass ratio and excellent thermal and electrical properties. These features make them ideal for a range of applications, including supercapacitors, interconnects, adhesives, particle trapping and structural color.

New research reveals even more potential for CNTs: as a coating, they can both repel and hold water in place, a useful property for applications like printing,...

Im Focus: Magnetisches Tuning auf der Nanoskala

Magnetische Nanostrukturen maßgeschneidert herzustellen und nanomagnetische Materialeigenschaften gezielt zu beeinflussen, daran arbeiten Physiker des Helmholtz-Zentrums Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) gemeinsam mit Kollegen des Leibniz-Instituts für Festkörper- und Werkstoffforschung (IFW) Dresden und der Universität Glasgow. Zum Einsatz kommt ein spezielles Mikroskop am Ionenstrahlzentrum des HZDR, dessen hauchdünner Strahl aus schnellen geladenen Atomen (Ionen) periodisch angeordnete und stabile Nanomagnete in einem Probenmaterial erzeugen kann. Es dient aber auch dazu, die magnetischen Eigenschaften von Kohlenstoff-Nanoröhrchen zu optimieren.

„Materialien im Nanometerbereich magnetisch zu tunen birgt ein großes Potenzial für die Herstellung modernster elektronischer Bauteile. Für unsere magnetischen...
