Brigitte and Wolfram Gedek Science Award

The Brigitte and Wolfram Gedek-Foundation (Brigitte und Wolfram Gedek-Stiftung) was founded in 2009. The foundation supports scientists who dedicated their research to the field of mycology and mycotoxinology.

The Society for Mycotoxin Research awards the Brigitte and Wolfram Gedek Science Award for outstanding scientific achievements in the area of mycotoxicology on a biennial basis since 2000, with the generous support from Prof. Dr. Brigitte Gedek (formerly Professor for Bacteriology and Mycology at the Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich, Germany). 

The award is endowed with 10,000 Euro, further emphasizing the outstanding importance of this honour in the field of life sciences.

The Brigitte Gedek Science Award is scheduled again for 2022 or 2023. Applications must be made by a member of the Society for Mycotoxin Research (unsolicited applications are not accepted).
