8The Jung Foundation for Science and Research in Hamburg is announcing the winners of this year’s awards for cutting-edge medicine to the public today.
His research has already led to groundbreaking knowledge – and will help in the development of new treatment methods for particularly difficult to control diseases in the future: diseases which lead to a weakening or failure of the immune system and reduce the quality of life or even threaten the life of those affected.
When Professor Charles Weissmann receives the Ernst Jung Gold Medal for Medicine this May, he will be honored for a life’s work which would easily have been enough to fill the lives of several outstanding researchers.
Dr. Thomas Schmidt receives 3 years of support for path-breaking studies with the Ernst Jung Career Advancement Award for Medical Research 2014
