This release is available in German.

Four women and two men have been chosen to receive this year's Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize, Germany's top research award for young scientists. This is the first time in the history of the prize, which has been awarded annually by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research since 1977, that the majority of the recipients have been young women.

The winners of the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize 2009, named after the former President of the DFG and atomic physicist Professor Heinz Maier-Leibnitz, are:
