Valentin Djonov, MD (Department of Anatomy, University of Bern)
awarded for: Characterization of intussusceptive angiogenesis in different organs as well as in carcinogenesis using various LM and EM techniques including high-quality corrosion-casts.
Lukas Sommer, Ph.D. (Department of Cell Biology, ETH-Hönggerberg, Zürich)
awarded for: Contributions to the identification of markers characterizing intermediate progenitor cell stages in the developing nervous system using specifically adapted in situ hybridization techniques in combination with immunohistochemical methods.
Thomas A. Misteli, Ph.D. (National Cancer Institute, NIH, Bethesda, MD, USA)
awarded for: Contributions to the elucidation of mechanisms underlying the fragmentation of the Golgi apparatus during mitosis and the coordination of transcription and pre-mRNA splicing.
Dieter R.C. Klopfenstein, Dipl. Biol. II (Biocenter, University of Basel)
awarded for: Contributions to the elucidation of mechanisms by which organelles interact with the cytoskeleton, notably for his demonstration of an entirely new mechanism involving p63, an integral ER protein, which mediates an interaction between ER and microtubules.
