Goals of the Rainer Rudolph Foundation


The major aim of the Rainer Rudolph Foundation is to promote and support basic and applied aspects in the area of protein biochemistry and biotechnology. Young scientists who have achieved outstanding results in that field are being nominated for the Rainer Rudolph Prizes and receive an award. Awardees present their achievements to the public during a conference featuring protein biochemistry.

In addition, scientific meetings and congresses are being supported by the foundation.
