“Next Generation of Science Journalists” Award 2013

12.07.2013
To analyze and communicate complex scientific topics is an art. Medical science journalism is no exception. To help recognize emerging medical science journalists, Deutsches Ärzteblatt, the European Union of Science Journalists’ Associations (EUSJA), and the World Health Summit (WHS) will grant the “Next Generation of Science Journalists” Award for the second time.

The top selected five young professionals will be invited to participate in the WHS 2013 and experience a unique international networking and learning opportunity. This provides a career head-start as the annual World Health Summit attracts some 1000 high-ranking participants from all health-related sectors – from Nobel Prize laureates to CEOs and future leaders. Additionally, each winner will receive 500 Euro to recompense travel expenses.

Terms of Application:

- Submission of one article on the main topic of “Global Health”, which must have been published after January 1, 2012. The article must be informed by an appropriate scientific background.
- The article may be published in any form: print, digital, acoustic or visual. Audio and video content is to be made available via web-link.
- Submissions will be accepted from every country, however, English is required. Translations will be accepted if the original article is attached.
- The applicants are to be at the beginning of their career as science journalists with a maximum of 5 years’ experience.
- A short CV (one page), and a scan of a current passport must accompany the submission.
- Please send applications to: science-journalist-award@worldhealthsummit.org
- The submission deadline is September 15, 2013.
An expert panel will rate all submissions and communicate the decision shortly after the deadline. Winning submissions will receive reimbursement for travel expenses (500 Euro each) at the World Health Summit. Please note however: transport and accommodation will need to be organized and paid for individually.

World Health Summit 2013

Each year, the World Health Summit brings together about 1000 high-ranking participants from academia, politics, the private sector, and civil society. It is being held under the high patronage of Angela Merkel, François Hollande, and José Manuel Barroso.

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
