Hermann Rein award

Hermann Reins is dedicated to promote established investigators
Hermann Rein (1898–1953) was one of the most renowned German physiologists from 1933 to 1953 particularly interested in the body’s responses to changing environmental conditions. During this period, he was nominated 12 times for the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine. Rein was trained as a medical doctor and combined his knowledge of human physiology in health and disease with an interest in physics and chemistry to design innovative measurement techniques. For instance, he invented the ‘Thermostromuhr’, a method to measure blood flow without opening the vessels, originally published in 1928 (Z Biol. 1928;87:394–403).

Aletta Jacobs Awards

The Aletta Jacobs award is dedicated to promote female scientists in the field of vascular biology at the start of their career. It was first introduced at the joint Dutch German microcirculation meeting in 2018 in Amsterdam, and continued to promote cross-border vascular research involving junior scientists. Eligible are female PhD students, and female Postdocs within on year upon their thesis defense.
