DZD Awards: Honors For Young Helmholtz-Munich Researchers

Awards & Grants, Diabetes,

Every year, the German Center for Diabetes Research (DZD) honors young researchers at the beginning of their careers with a DZD Award. This internal award recognizes outstanding scientific achievements in applied or clinical research presented at diabetes conferences in the form of posters or lectures. Six of the ten prizewinners conduct research at Helmholtz Munich.

The young talents receive the DZD Award for outstanding conference contributions and one prize is awarded for the best achievement in the field of science communication. The awards are endowed with €1000 each. This award is granted annually by the DZD NEXT Board. DZD NEXT is the DZD's program for the promotion of young scientists.
