in Berlin, Frankfurt and New York. Following stints in Frankfurt and Gieen, he became a professor at the University of Frankfurt in 2004; despite several offers from renowned universities in other countries, Forst has remained faithful to it.

Prof. Dr. Gunther Hartmann (45), Clinical Pharmacology/Innate Immunity, University Hospital Bonn jointly with Prof. Dr. Christian Kurts (47), Immunology/Nephrology, University Hospital Bonn

Gunther Hartmann and Christian Kurts will share the Leibniz Prize in recognition of their seminal discoveries concerning the mode of action of the body's endogenous defence systems. They do their excellent work at the same location, the University Hospital in Bonn, but at different departments and independently of each other. Clinical pharmacologist Hartmann has critically improved the understanding of nucleic acid detection by the immune system, especially with his research into the effect of CpG oligonucleotides on the highly important dendritic cells, and into short-interfering RNAs. These investigations are important for understanding the defence against viruses and the development of a rapid immune response against invading pathogens. Hartmann's findings can also be used for the development of new vaccines and pharmacologically active substances for the inhibition of genes. The foundation for Gunther Hartmann's work, which has already been recognised with several national and international awards, was laid with a DFG-funded postdoctoral fellowship in Iowa, United States. From there Hartmann moved on to Munich and then to Bonn, where he has led the Institute of Clinical Chemistry and Pharmacology since 2007.

Christian Kurts is also particularly interested in elucidating the function of dendritic cells. The research topics of this immunologist and specialist in internal medicine, however, are extremely broad and interdisciplinary. They range from the cross-presentation of antigens, to the interactio
