Otto Warburg Medal 2022 for Stefanie Dimmeler - April 2022
Stefanie Dimmeler has been awarded the Otto Warburg Medal 2022. The Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM) as well as its cooperation partners, the information analytics company Elsevier and Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) journals, honoured Prof. Dimmeler her pioneering work in the field of cardiovascular disease
With her findings, Prof. Dimmeler has been able to make a fundamental contribution to the understanding of cardiovascular diseases and develop therapeutic approaches aimed at improving cardiovascular regeneration after a heart attack.
Cardiovascular diseases are among the leading causes of death worldwide. Prof. Dimmeler and her team have succeeded in using an inhibitor against a non-coding RNA to improve blood flow and strengthen cardiac function. The goal of their various approaches is to develop new cellular and pharmacological therapies to improve the treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
LOEWE-Spitzen-Professur for Prof. Dr. Herold - March 2022

ERC Consolidator Grant - December 2020
Fantastic News! CPI PI Reinier Boon received an ERC Consolidator Grant to investigate the contribution of non-coding RNAs in aging-related diseases!
The „European Reaserch Council“ (ERC) announced on 9 December 2020 the top researchers that successfully applied for a consolidator grant. ICR group leader Reinier Boon is one them. He will receive funding for 5 years to investigate the role of non-coding RNAs in aging.
Ageing is the most prominent cause of heart failure. The main type of heart failure in the elderly is heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, in which the heart does not properly fill with blood. In the consolidator project, Prof Boon will investigate the contribution of non-coding RNAs in this aging-related disease. The ultimate goal of the project is to identify novel targets to treat aging-induced heart failure.
The ERC Consolidator Grant funding helps mid-career researchers to address frontier research questions, build up their teams & have far-reaching impact. In total 327 top researchers received a ERC consolidator grant funding worth in total €655 million
