ARNOLD RIKLI AWARD 2019
For photobiological investigations in relation to human beings, we hereby announce the awarding of the 20th Arnold Rikli Prize in the amount of 10.000 Euro for the year 2019.
The prize was originally awarded by the Institute F. Wolff of Riehen, Switzerland and first established in 1989. Jörg Wolff, the brother of the former sponsor, continues this tradition. The prize has been announced by the Jörg Wolff foundation every year since 2006 and stands under the patronage of the European Society for Photobiology (ESP).
The submitted reports should cover investigations on biological effects of optical radiation (ultraviolet, visible, and infrared radiation). The results should show new aspects for diagnostic investigation and/or therapy or provide guidelines for the practical utilization of biologic basics and/or future research with optical radiation.
Unpublished papers, or papers published after January 1, 2017 must be submitted in English language and be delivered to the office address or submitted electronically to the e-mail address mentioned below not later than January 31, 2020. The submission should focus on one area of speciality. An additional abstract of no more than 300 words should outline the research and the significance of it. In the case that the submission is “in cumulo“ (five studies at most) a brief explanation should be provided uniting the presentations together. It is desirable to enclose a letter of support in English for the award nomination.
An independent jury will evaluate the investigations and nominate the winner. The prize ceremony will take place at the International Symposium “Biologic Effect of Light”, in June 2020 in Homburg/Saar, Germany.
