DECHEMA Gesellschaft für Chemische Technik und Biotechnologie is pleased to invite entries for the tenth award of the Hellmuth Fischer Medal.
Preference is given to scientists, who must have obtained their Ph.D. not earlier than 12 years before the deadline for applications for work that has contributed towards extending or deepening the fundamentals of electrochemistry, corrosion or corrosion protection, or towards their industrial application.
Nominations for candidates should be accompanied by a curriculum vitae, reprints of important publications, a list of publications and a brief statement for the reasons for the nomination (approx. 1 typewritten page).
It is not possible for candidates to nominate themselves.
Nominations should be submitted by February 27, 2015 to:
Prof. Dr. K. Wagemann
P.O.Box 15 01 04
D-60061 Frankfurt am Main
The final decision on the award of the 2015 Hellmuth Fischer Medal lies with the
Selection Committee which is composed of six distinguished scientists. The medal will be presented on the occasion of the 13th International Fischer Symposium which will take place in Lübeck/Germany from 7 – 11 June 2015.

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.
Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...
Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.
Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
