In the third year since its endowment, the International Birnstiel Award for Doctoral Studies in Molecular Life Sciences will be presented to six extremely accomplished and talented young scientists: Sanne Boersma (Hubrecht Institute), Fanny Matheis (The Rockefeller University), Adi Millman (Weizmann Institute of Science), Sanne van Neerven (Amsterdam University Medical Centers and Oncode Institute), Kristina Stapornwongkul (University College London/The Francis Crick Institute), and Gregor Weiss (ETH Zurich).
Competition for the Birnstiel Award 2021 was again extremely strong: more than 100 institutions followed the call to nominate their best PhD student of the previous year. Nominations came from many leading research institutions, with an almost global spread - Europe, North America, Asia, and Australia. The selection committee faced a difficult task in selecting only six awardees from such a large pool of accomplishment and talent.
