The Marthe Vogt Award

Every year since 2001, FVB has presented the Marthe Vogt Award worth € 3,000 to a young female scientist who has written an outstanding PhD within a scientific area covered by FVB in the region of Berlin and Brandenburg.

This year's Marthe Vogt Award ceremony will take place on November 2, starting at 6 p.m. at Leibniz Headquarters. It will also be broadcast as a livestream.

The link to the livestream of the Marthe Vogt Award ceremony will be published here soon.

The institutes’ research fields include e.g. information and communication technology, structure research, optoelectronics and laser research, microsystems technology, new materials, applied mathematics, molecular medicine and biology, veterinary medicine, biotechnology and environmental research.

Name giver Marthe Vogt (1903-2003) researched neurotransmitters and worked at the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Institut für Hirnforschung in Berlin-Buch, today‘s location of our Leibniz-Forschungsinstitut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP). She is a role model for our prize in an academic and human way. Because of the National Socialist policy against Jewish scientists, she left Germany in 1935 and continued her research in Great Britain.
