Thieme Award 2018 for the Most Innovative Planta Medica Original Paper
Ever since 2013, Thieme awards every year the most promising paper published in Planta Medica in the previous year. The decision of the jury – the Editors of the journal – is strictly based on scientific quality and on the interest that the paper has met with in the scientific community. The prize money is EUR 1.500. This year, a paper by Kamal et al., “Metabolomics-Guided Isolation of Anti-trypanosomal Metabolites from the Endophytic Fungus Lasiodiplodia theobromae”, has won the race. In a moving award ceremony during the Editorial Board Meeting in Florence, Professor Edrada-Ebel from the University of Strathclyde accepted the prize on behalf of her working group. Congratulations!
