The German Society for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine e. V. (DGKL) awards the „Biochemical Analytics“ prize for outstanding scientific work in the field of biochemical and molecular analytics.
The prize is awarded for methodological advances in the field of biochemical and molecular analytics and for new significant scientific discoveries in the field of biological sciences, particularly in clinical chemistry and clinical biochemistry involving the application of modern analytical methods.
Biochemical analysis includes methods of analytical chemistry which are based on biochemical reactions and/or reagents of biological origin; it also includes the use of methods and equipment, in particular those used in instrumental analysis, which allow the definition of biological and other parameters affecting biological processes.
Der Preis wird in der Regel alle 2 Jahre verliehen. Die Verleihung nimmt der Präsident der DGKL bei der Eröffnung der Tagung vor. Jeder Preisträger ist verpflichtet, anschließend über die wichtigsten Ergebnisse seiner Arbeit zu berichten. Er ist weiter verpflichtet, der Fachpresse gegenüber seine Arbeit zu erläutern.
The prize can be awarded to any person who presents outstanding scientific work in the field of biochemical and molecular analytics. The work must have been published or accepted for publication. It may also be awarded for several works published over a longer period of time covering one specific field comprehensively. The award can be split.
The award will be announced through at least five international and national professional bodies. The closing date for entries will be stated with the announcement.
Candidates for the prize may apply directly or be nominated by the members of the DGKL executive committee or the jury. The following documents must be submitted:
a scientific curriculum vitae, a summary of the scientific work and the individual papers on which the proposal is based.
Three members of the DGKL Presidium, three scientists nominated by the DGKL Presidium, the secretary of the „Biochemical Analytics“ award as appointed by the DGKL executive committee, optionally a representative of the sponsor.
The voting committee will make a preliminary selection from the submitted works. The selected works are submitted to at least two experts, who will be appointed by the jury. The winners shall be elected by the voting committee in a secret written ballot. The decision is made by a majority vote. In the event of a tie, the election shall be repeated. In the event of another tie, the president or his/her deputy shall decide.
