ADF Awards

The ADF announces various prizes to reward scientists / researchers from the field of dermatological research. In addition to the Paul Langerhans Award for established researchers and the Egon Macher Award for young investigators outstanding works in the field of allergy research (ADF / ECARF Award of European Allergy Research) and oncology (Dermato Oncology Junior Scientist Award) will be honored on the ADF Annual Meetings.

In addition, the best posters will be awarded with a poster prize.

Please note:
For poster prices, the ADF / ECARF Award for European Allergy Research, the Dermato Oncology Junior Scientist Awards and for the Translational Research Award, a separate application is not necessary. For these prices all abstracts submitted before the deadline will be evaluated.
Submissions for the Paul Langerhans Award and the Egon Macher Award should be made in all cases exclusively in electronic form as one PDF file to the ADF office.
Submission deadline: November 01.

Dermato Oncology Junior Scientist Award of the ADF

- Supported by the Erwin + Irmgard-Egner Foundation -

In the year 2018 the ADF will have the possibility to announce 3 awards for junior scientists working in the field of Dermato Oncology. These awards are support by the Erwin & Irmgard Egner foundation (two Junior Scientist Awards). 
All studies submitted in time to the ADF annual meeting (poster / oral presentation) with a focus in the field of oncology will be considered. The award will be given to the first author or a working group that conducted the research. The allocation of the award is independent of the ADF membership of the authors. 

The award is endowed with 2.500 € dotiert.

The award ceremony will be held during the Annual ADF meeting. The awardee will be chosen by an independent board of trustees that is elected by the ADF board every three years.

The awardee is asked to publish a short report at the ADF home journal Experimental Dermatology.

Board of trustees:

  • Prof. Dr. med. Manfred Kunz (Vorsitz)
  • Prof. Dr. med. Steffen Emmert
  • Priv. Doz. Dr. med. Sebastian Haferkamp
  • Prof. Dr. Jennifer Landsberg
  • Prof. Dr. med. Bastian Schilling
  • Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Birgit Schittek
