innings of the "Arabellion" before it even broke out.

After pursuing Oriental, Arabic and Turkish studies in Bamberg, Paris, Berlin and Damascus, Friederike Pannewick's thesis at the Free University of Berlin was published as a book. This was followed by work as a research associate and postdoc in Berlin and several research visits in Lebanon. Since 2007 Pannewick has been professor of modern Arabic literature at the Center for Near and Middle Eastern Studies (CNMS) at the University of Marburg.

Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Rajewsky (43), Systems Biology, Max Delbrck Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC), Berlin

Nikolaus Rajewsky has set new standards in systems biology and enriched the life sciences as a whole. With great creativity and productivity, his work combines physics and mathematics with systems biology, which examines the regulatory processes in whole cells or organisms across the genome or proteome. Of particular importance is Rajewsky's work on microRNAs, small non-coding RNAs that play a key role in controlling cellular processes, but also in the development of cancer and other diseases. A computer program developed under Rajewsky's guidance made it possible for the first time to identify the target genes of microRNAs. Using another technology, the strength of the effect of microRNA regulation on protein synthesis could be described. With the antagomirs he helped develop, Rajewsky was able to shut down the activities of microRNAs specifically and reliably. This is also a starting point for the development of novel drugs.

With a background in mathematics and physics, Nicholas Rajewsky, following his doctorate in theoretical physics in Cologne and postdoctoral periods in New Jersey and at Rockefeller University, New York, turned to systems biology. After an assistant professorship at New York University, he returned to Germany in 2006. He is now professor at the Max Delbrck Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) in Berlin, an
