Eppendorf recently presented the 2019 Young European Investigator award to Georg Winter, Principal Investigator at the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, Vienna, Austria. First established by the company in 1995, the prize recognizes the innovative contributions made to biomedical research by Euopean scientists.
Winter developed a novel method for targeting specific proteins for degradation using heterobifunctional chemical compounds to specifically recruit ubiquitin E3 ligases to intended protein targets for destruction. The disease-relevant proteins that were the focus of the research had been deemed thus far “undruggable.”
Winter has received prize money of €20, 000 and credits his colleagues and mentors for their support and collaboration. “I’ve had many close and fruitful collaborations with other talented researchers whose advice and mentorship made a world of difference to my investigations,” he said.
Eppendorf is now accepting applications for its 2020 award. Nominations will be accepted from October 1, 2019 until January 15, 2020. The Young European Investigators award is open to candidates aged 35 or younger.
