Translational Research Award
- donated by Novartis Pharma GmbH - NEW: To be continued in 2018!
From 2006 to 2014, the ADF was able to offer two prizes in the field of Translational Research, which were awarded by the Foundation Dermatologikum Hamburg every second year. From 2018 on we are able to offer six prizes per year supported by Novartis Pharma GmbH.
These prizes will be awarded to researchers in the field of Dermatology who are attempting to transfer insights gained in experimental basic research into clinical applications. Junior scientists who present outstanding and innovative work in this field are preferably considered.
Awarded are 6 x 2.500,- EUR.
An independent scientific advisory board consisting of former ADF board members, clinic directors and leader of specific centers within dermatological clinics will select and nominate the awardees.
The Translational Research prizes will be awarded at the ADF Annual Meeting to researchers or clinician scientists (first or senior authors) who performed outstanding work in the field of Translational Research. The Translational Research prizes will cover six different focus areas of dermatological research.
The prizes, which are awarded in six different disciplines of dermatological research, will be awarded to first / senior authors during the ADF anniversary, which will carry out outstanding work in this field. Each application for the Translational Research Prize is reviewed by a number of members of the Board of Trustees, with the appraisers assigned to the individual applications in the batch process (to the exclusion of a possible bias). Subsequently, each reviewer evaluates the assignments assigned to him using a standardized point system according to the innovation and originality of the submitted work, their relevance and their possible potential for translation into clinical application. The work with the highest score in each category is awarded, whereby the division of the prizes is possible for the same number of points.
All contributions to clinical translation research that were submitted as an abstract on time to the ADF Annual Meeting will be considered.
New Board of trustees is to be announced until end of 2017!
Board of trustees (until 2014):
- Prof. Dr. Wolf Henning Boehncke (Vorsitz)
- Prof. Dr. Jens Malte Baron
- Prof. Dr. Cornelia Mauch
