Venue: FIAS Hörsaal

Thanks to a generous donation from the Giersch Foundation, FIAS can present the "FIAS Senior Fellow Laureatus" award for the 5th time. In 2023, the prize goes to Prof. Dr. Thomas Südhof.

The biochemist and renowned neuroscientist currently heads the Südhof Laboratory at Stanford University Medical School. In 2013 he received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. His work has helped deepen the understanding of signaling between neurons in the brain, particularly with regard to the release of neurotransmitters that are important for communication between neurons.

Südhof was recognized for his research on the molecular mechanisms of vesicle fusion in the synaptic domain. These findings are of great importance for the understanding of neurological diseases and for the development of drugs to treat such diseases. His work has advanced basic research in neuroscience and contributed to a deeper understanding of how the brain works.

As part of the "Giersch School & International Conference", the public award ceremony for Professor Südhof will take place on November 8, 2023. Prof. Südhof will give a lecture on his current research.
