BIH in cooperation with the Institute of Gender in Medicine (GiM) announces the “BIH Excellence Award for Sex and Gender Aspects in Health Research” for the first time in 2017. The award aims to bring more visibility to sex and gender issues in translational research. It recognizes research excellence among renowned scientists working in the field of basic and/or clinical biomedical research with a focus on sex and gender aspects.
Renowned scientists working in the field of basic or clinical biomedical research who have made significant contributions to translational research with high relevance to the mission and strategy of BIH and a clear focus on sex and gender aspects in their research are invited to apply. The winner of the award will receive 20.000€ for use on future research activities with a focus on sex and/or gender aspects.
Furthermore, BIH wants to bring laureates’ expertise to Berlin with the aim to connect them personally within the BIH Translational Research Commons. For this reason, BIH may nominate laureates as an Einstein BIH Visiting Fellow or BIH Visiting Professor to the Charité Foundation, if applicable. The application deadline is October 15, 2017.
