 Hans Horst Meyer Award

 sponsored by  

The Hans Horst Meyer Award is awarded annually by the Austrian Pharmacological Society (APHAR) in order to honour outstanding achievements of young scientists in basic research in the field of experimental pharmacology and toxicology as well as clinical pharmacology and to support their further career.

The award sum is 2,000 Euros and is generously provided by Roche Austria GmbH.

The prize is awarded for scientific papers which have been published in a generally recognised scientific publication medium in the last 2 years or which have been accepted for publication therein. It is not permitted to submit the publication for another award. Publications that have already been awarded another prize will not be taken into consideration.

The award shall be given to scientists who at the deadline for submission have not yet reached the age of 35. Applicants must be a member of APHAR.

Membership in APHAR:

As the statutes of the award prescribe that the prize can only be awarded to members of APHAR, applicants who are not yet members of APHAR must submit their application for membership early enough so that a decision on this application can be reached before a final decision on the award is made.

Further information:

For further information please contact the Secretary General.
