Board of Trustees

The Heinrich Wieland Prize is endowed by the Boehringer Ingelheim Foundation, which entrusts the selection of Heinrich Wieland Laureates to a scientific Board of Trustees. Every year the foundation invites scientists to make nominations in an open call. The trustees – all working in an honorary capacity – decide on the awardee based upon the scientific achievements of each candidate in his or her particular field of research.

The current board members are:

  • Professor Dr Silvia Arber, University of Basel, Switzerland
  • Professor Bonnie Bassler, PhD, Princeton University, USA
  • Professor Dr Stefan Bornstein (Deputy Chairman), University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus, Dresden, Germany
  • Professor Erick M. Carreira, PhD, ETH Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
  • Professor Dr Florian Gantner, C. H. Boehringer Sohn AG & Co. KG, Biberach, Germany
  • Professor Dr F. Ulrich Hartl (Chairman), Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry, Martinsried, Germany
