Research Award of the Jorg Wolff Foundation under the patronage of the European Society for Photobiology: Arnold Rikli Award 2017
For photobiological investigations in relation to human beings, we hereby announce the awarding of the 18. Arnold Rikli Prize in the amount of 10.000,– Euro for the year 2017. The prize was originally awarded by the Institute F. Wolff of Riehen, Switzerland and first established in 1989. Jorg Wolff, the brother of the former sponsor, continues this tradition. The prize has been announced by the Jorg 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Unpublished papers, or papers published after January 1, 2015 must be submitted in English language and be delivered to the office address or submitted electronically to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 February 28, 2018. 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 for the award nomination.
An independent jury will evaluate the investigations and nominate the winner. The presentation of the award will take place at the Symposium “Licht und Gesundheit” in November 2018 in Berlin (Germany).
