2014 FEBS Anniversary Prize winner goes to Cambridge scientist


Cambridge Scientist Akhilesh B. Reddy, wins 2014 FEBS Anniversary Prize

The FEBS Anniversary Prize started in 1974 on the occasion of its 10th anniversary. It is funded by capital gifts from Boehringer Mannheim and Eppendorf and is awarded annually to researchers of 40 years of age or younger for outstanding achievements in the field of biochemistry and molecular biology or related sciences.

Up to two winners are selected from the best abstracts submitted to the organisers of the annual congress of FEBS (Federation of European Biochemical Societies). The prize administration is managed by both FEBS and the Gesellschaft für Biochemie und Molekularbiologie (GBM), and up to two Anniversary Prizes of €2,000 and a diploma are awarded each year.

In 2014 the UK scientist Akkilesh Reddy is one of the two Anniversary Prize winners. In acknowledgement of Dr Reddy's outstanding work, Eppendorf UK Territory Manager, Vanessa Talbot presented him with a small token of appreciation, an Eppendorf Research plus pipette engraved with his name.

Eppendorf would like to congratulate both winners of the FEBS Anniversary Prize: Akhilesh B. Reddy, Institute of Metabolic Science, Cambridge and Rotem Sorek, Weizman Institute of Science, Israel.

The next FEBS Congress is July 4 - 9, 2015 in Berlin, Germany.
