Prous Institute-Overton and Meyer Award for New Technologies in Drug Discovery
The "Prous Institute-Overton and Meyer Award for New Technologies in Drug Discovery" was established to encourage innovation and investigation in technologies related to drug discovery. The Award is given biennially, without restrictions regarding nationality, to acknowledge the discovery, evaluation or use of a new technology, and consists of a diploma, € 7.500 and an invitation to present a lecture at an EFMC-ISMC symposium.
Previous recipients were: Prof. D. Neri in 2006 and Prof. C.O. Kappe in 2004.
Prof. Dario Neri Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zürich, Switzerland
Winner of the 2006 Prous Science Award for New Technologies in Drug Discovery
Professor Neri receives this award for his pioneering work establishing synthetic antibody libraries obtained employing phage display technology. Although this technology is still in its early stages, it holds significant potential for the discovery of new LMW binders to variety of protein targets.
The Prous Science Award for New Technologies in Drug Discovery 2004 for Prof. C. Oliver Kappe
The award was granted to Prof. C. Oliver Kappe, Karl-Franzens University, Graz, on the basis of his outstanding scientific curriculum vitae. In particular, his work on microwave-assisted combinatorial chemistry was considered highly innovative and fruitful.
