Georg Reiser Prize on Neurobiochemistry

The Georg Reiser Prize on Neurobiochemistry honors the best contribution in the fields of neurobiochemistry and research on molecular targets to the 9th ISN&N. The awardee will be identified based on the abstract rating by the blinded reviewer committee. He or she nominated by the ISN&N Scientific Board. The award comprises:

  • Oral presentation at the 9th ISN&N
  • a €800 cash prize and
  • an official certificate

Please note: There is no restriction on age, but only one contribution will be honored. Please make sure to register yourself as a candidate for the Georg Reiser Prize on Neurobiochemistry at the time of abstract submission!


We are pleased to express our congratulations.

Georg Reiser

After studying physics and chemistry at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich and at Université de Lausanne (Switzerland), Georg Reiser did his PhD-dissertation at the Max-Planck-Institute for Biochemistry until 1977. He studied biochemical properties of cellular and electrical signaling in neural cell lines. In 1982 to 1984, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow and honorary research assistant at University College, London, studying extrasynaptic acetylcholine receptor channels. Then Georg Reiser moved to the University of Tübingen, where he became leader of an independent research group on Molecular Neurophysiology. His worked focused on calcium regulation and role of inositol phosphates in astrocytes and neurons.

In 1993, Georg Reiser was appointed full professor of biochemistry and director of the Institute for Neurobiochemistry at the Medical Faculty, Magdeburg. He was the principal investigator in many national and international research consortia His research interests have finally focused on molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration and avenues of neuroprotection, besides studying protease-activated receptors, the role of phospholipases and fatty acids in inherited neurodegenerative diseases, and calcium-induced permeability transition in brain mitochondria. Together with Klaus Reymann, Georg Reiser is the inaugural president of the ISN&N meeting series.
