Scientists at the MPI for Polymer Research are regularly awarded prizes for their research work, publications or posters. Here you will find an overview of prizes and awards
Dr. Jenée Cyran
Jenée Cyran, a MaxWater Postdoc in the department of Prof. Mischa Bonn, received the prestigious Young Investigator Award of the American Chemical Society (ACS). The prize is awarded once a year by the Physical Chemistry Division of the ACS. Jenée Cyran is working on the observation of how different trace gaces interact with ice. On the basis of the prize she was awarded, she presented her work at the Fall meeting of the ACS in San Diego
Dr. Johanna Simon
Johanna Simon received the renowned Otto Hahn Award of the Max Planck Society for her dissertation on "Proteomic characterization of the biomolecular corona and its impact on targeted drug delivery via nanocarriers". The prize includes a scientific stay abroad of up to two years. Afterwards, she will be able to set up her own research group at a Max Planck Institute of her choice.
The Otto Hahn Award is granted annually to a maximum of four young scientists for outstanding achievements in their dissertations. It is intended to pave the way for a long-term scientific career.
