September 13, 2019 David Hulmes

ISMB is pleased to announce the Opening of the Competition to identify the 2020 Rupert Timpl Award winner. Deadline of 31st Dec. 2019.

The International Society for Matrix Biology created in 2004 a prize dedicated to the memory of the outstanding matrix biologist, Rupert Timpl, who died on October 20th, 2003. The prize is called the “Rupert Timpl Award”.

The prize is awarded biannually at the occasion of the Matrix Biology Europe /FECTS meeting. It is given to a young matrix biologist at an early stage of their scientific career, in general below 40 years of age, who has published the “Best paper in the field of matrix biology” during the two years prior to the year of the MBE/FECTS meeting. As an integral part of the programme, the laureate will give a plenary lecture, called the Rupert Timpl Lecture, at the 2020 MBE meeting to be held in Florence, Italy, 24-28 May, 2020.

A prize of EUR 2,000 will be given, which is generously sponsored by Elsevier, the publisher of Matrix Biology.
