Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology 2016: Call for Entries!
Eppendorf and the “Science” journal are now accepting applications for the 2016 Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology. This annual international research prize of US$25,000 is awarded to young scientists for their outstanding contributions to neurobiology research based on methods of molecular and cell biology. Researchers who are not older than 35 years are invited to apply by June 15, 2016. The winner and finalists are selected by a committee of independent scientists, chaired by Science’s Senior Editor, Dr. Peter Stern.
In 2015, Japanese scientist Shigeki Watanabe, Ph.D. from John Hopkins University (Baltimore, USA), has won the prestigious international award. He has developed two novel techniques in electron microscopy that allow for the visualization of protein and membrane dynamics at synapses with millisecond temporal resolution.
You can find an interview with Shigeki Watanabe and more details about the Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology 2016 at www.eppendorf.com/prize.

BioNews No. 44: How pipette tips influence assay results
The international standard ISO 8655:2002 recommends the use of pipettes and tips by the same manufacturer. In a study conducted by Eppendorf with standard tips from 15 different manufacturers this recommendation proved to be true. The study results showed a dramatic influence of the tip on the pipetting results.

Thomas Bachmann is new Chief Executive Officer of the Eppendorf Group
Thomas Bachmann became Chief Executive Officer of the Eppendorf Group on August 1, 2015. Following the departure of Eppendorf's previous CEO, the company's Chief Financial Officer, Detmar Ammermann, had exercised the function of Spokesman of the Management Board on an interim basis in addition to his responsibilities as CFO.
Bachmann, who has been a member of the Eppendorf Supervisory Board since 2013, came to Eppendorf from his position as President of the Bruker BioSpin Group. He has been active in the life science sector since 2005, when he took on the overall management of the globally active Tecan Group, which is headquartered in Switzerland.
"We are very pleased that we have been able to win Thomas Bachmann as our Chief Executive Officer," said Klaus Fink, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Eppendorf Group. "He has demonstrated his expertise and his strategic foresight in many ways during more than 25 years of experience in international management positions."
Bachmann explains: "Eppendorf is an innovative, customer-oriented company with a strong, well-known brand and a global orientation, and it succeeds again and again in making important contributions to analytic, medical, diagnostic and life science laboratories. I am looking forward to working with Eppendorf's very competent and committed global management to develop the company sustainably and successfully in the years to come."
