BRB Award

Bernd R. Binder Publication Prize
In Vascular Biology & Thrombosis Research

The Bernd R. Binder Publication Prize was established in Memory of the founder of Technoclone Prof. Dr. Bernd R. Binder (1945-2010) to promote young scientists who have shown an outstanding contribution to the field of Vascular Biology and Thrombosis Research.
This prize underlines Technoclone's tradition in fostering and supporting innovative research in academia an outstanding contribution to the field of Vascular Biology and Thrombosis Research.

After 10 years being part of the Joint Meeting on Vascular Biology, Inflammation and Thrombosis, we are happy to announce that from 2023 on the BRB Publication Prize will be part of the European Congress on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ECTH)  The ECTH brings together researchers, scientists, clinicians and other healthcare professionals at the premier scientific congress in Europe around thrombosis and bleeding. It offers a comprehensive scientific and clinical education across a broad set of current and soon-to-be released studies, new findings, treatments or products.

About the BRB Publication Prize

One award of € 2,500.- to the first author of an excellent original article in the areas of Vascular Biology and Thrombosis Research published in an international peer-reviewed journal.
