Arnold Rikli Award 2014

Research Award of the Jörg Wolff-Foundation
Deadline: January 31, 2015

For photobiological investigations in relation to human beings, the Jörg Wolff-Foundation announces the awarding of the 16th Arnold Rikli Prize in the amount of 10.000 Euro for the year 2014.

The prize was originally awarded by the Institute F. Wolff of Riehen, Switzerland and first established in 1989. Jörg Wolff, the brother of the former sponsor, continues this tradition and the price is announced by the Jörg Wolff foundation every year since 2006.
The submitted reports should cover investigations on biological effects of optical ra-diation (ultraviolet, visible, and infrared radiation). They should be of direct signifi-cance for human medical practice, or provide guidelines for future research.
Unpublished papers, or papers published after January 1, 2012, must be submitted in English or German language and be delivered to the office address mentioned above not later than January 31, 2015 (two copies required). The submission should focus on one area of speciality. An additional abstract of no more than 300 words should outline the research and the significance of it. In case that the submission is “in cumulo“ (five studies at most) a brief explanation should be provided uniting the presentations together. It is desirable to enclose a letter of support for the award nomination.
An independent jury will evaluate the investigations and nominate the winner. The presentation of the award will take place at the 20th Symposium of the Deutsche Akademie für Photobiologie und Phototechnologie, May 21 to 22, 2015 in Aachen (Germany).
