Judith Reichmann - who did her PhD with Ian Adams at the MRC Human Genetics Unit before embarking on a postdoc at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Germany - has won the Paul Ehrlich and Ludwig Darmstaedter Prize for Young Researchers.

The Prize is presented by the Paul Ehrlich Foundation to young scientists from all over the world who have achieved outstanding results in biomedical research and is one of the most significant of its kind in Germany.

Judith’s award recognises not only the work she has done as a postdoc on chromosome segregation in the early embryo, but also the work she did on Tex19 in meiotic chromosome segregation during her PhD. 

“Huge congratulations to Judith from everyone at the MRC Human Genetics Unit. We’re delighted that Judith’s work has been recognised by this prestigious prize and will continue to follow her research with great interest.”
