Life Science Awards Austria 2019 given to young Austrian researchers Each year, the ÖGMBT initiates a unique nationwide search in order to find the brightest young researchers in the Life Sciences field across all of Austria. At the 11th Annual Conference in Salzburg, five young scientists were honoured for their internationally sensational work. The promotion of young scientists is one of the ÖGMBT’s main pillars. Regularly awarding scientific prizes is an important measure to support early-stage researchers. Additionally, these awards highlight the excellence in the Austrian research landscape and increase the visibility of exceptional life sciences topics in the public. With the support of the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs (BMDW) and the industrial sponsors Polymun Scientific and THP Medical Products the prestigious awards together with prize money in the total amount of EUR 11.000 EUR were awarded. Two different awards were available: The Life Science Research Awards…
