Our Science Awardees will be honored at Bayer Foundation’s 2023 Science Award Celebration on the 14th of February 2024 in Leverkusen. The celebration will feature a mini symposium, including brief flash talks from the EESA recipients and distinguished Bayer scientists. Please find below the agenda.
Boundary-Breaking Science Symposia: Learning from Life in Extreme Environments
Studying extreme phenotypes like cancer resistance, longevity, and drought tolerance may lead to biomedical insights that would not otherwise be possible. The scope of this symposium was to peek into the fascinating world of extremophiles and to let nature inspire the scientific community at Bayer in all three divisions: Pharmaceuticals, Crop Science, and Consumer Health.
As of October 2023, Prof. Dr. Edith Heard has become the new Chairwoman of the Bayer Foundation Board of Trustees for the Science Program. Prof. Heard will succeed Prof. Patrick Cramer, president of the Max Planck Society, who was officially the Chair of the Board of Trustees until end of 2022.
