Michael Reth has won the Paul Ehrlich and Ludwig Darmstaedter Prize, awarded by the Paul Ehrlich Foundation, for his research on the immune system. For the first time since 1996, the prize goes to a scientist working in Germany. Reth is Professor for Molecular Immunology at the Institute of Biology III of the University of Freiburg and Scientific Director of the Cluster of Excellence BIOSS, Centre for Biological Signalling Studies. He is also head of the department for Molecular Immunology at the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics (MPI-IE). The prize is endowed with 100,000 and is one of the highest honours in science in Germany. By awarding the prize to Reth, the Foundation has chosen to honour a scientist who, like Nobel laureate Paul Ehrlich, decodes how immunity operates at a molecular level, in order to find new therapies for cancer and infectious diseases.

"This award is a great honour for me, because I deeply admire Paul Ehrlich's work in immunology," Reth said. "He was one of the first scientists to consider the molecular level in this field." Following Ehrlich's scientific tradition, Reth chose to focus his research on how the human body recognises foreign substances.

"Due to the success of vaccinations, which was one of the greatest achievements in medicine, immunology has been an applied science from the beginning. However, we still do not fully understand the processes that underlie immunisation," Reth remarks. That is why his research revolves around the B cell co
