The Marthe Vogt Award

Every year since 2001, FVB has presented the Marthe Vogt Award worth € 3,000 to a young female scientist active in a field covered by one of the FVB institutes. However, the work does not have to have been done at one of the FVB institutes.

The Forschungsverbund Berlin (FVB) has awarded this year's Marthe Vogt Award to the excellent young scientist Dr. Annita Louloupi. The award ceremony took place digitally during the Berlin Science Week on November 3.

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.
