What shapes the human immune system?
Eppendorf Award winner 2016 Prof. Adrian Liston (Group leader at VIB Translational Immunology Lab, University of Leuven, Belgium) and his team study the genetic basis of immune disease through a multi-disciplinary approach that assesses the entire cascade of events leading to disease. They keep a broad perspective of immune diseases rather than focusing in on a single pathway or technique.
Watch the video from the Eppendorf Award Ceremony on June 2, 2016, at the EMBL Advanced Training Centre in Heidelberg, with Adrian Liston’s scientific talk on the human immune system.

Eppendorf implements a flexible education plan for internal and external target groups
Hamburg, November 2015
High-quality training and further education of its employees and external partners represents one of the critical success factors for Eppendorf AG. Following initial positive experiences with eLearning, the company has now implemented an integrated training concept in cooperation with a leading provider of Blended Learning training solutions.
The objective of the partnership between Eppendorf AG and IMC AG (Saarbrücken, Germany) was to establish an open and flexible training platform both for its own employees and external partners. The result is the „Eppendorf Academy“, operated in the Microsoft Azure Cloud.
In a recently published joint Case Study (see pdf file), you can learn more about the efficient training strategy of the Eppendorf AG.

2014 winner of the Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology in Hamburg
Hamburg, June 2015 - The US scientist Eiman Azim, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Columbia University in New York and 2014 winner of the Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology, visited Eppendorf headquarters in Hamburg in June 2015. On this occasion Dr. Azim gave a talk about his ground-breaking work. His research offers fundamental new insights into the neural mechanisms that enable skilled limb movements to be both smooth and precise. Dr. Azim has provided direct support for long-standing theories about the roles of internal feedback pathways within the central nervous system and external feedback from the muscles in regulating fine motor control.
The international US$25,000 Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology is awarded jointly by Eppendorf and the journal Science. All young scientists who are 35 years of age or younger and who have made outstanding contributions to neurobiological research are invited to apply. The 2015 winner of the Prize will be announced in the fall. The next deadline for applications is June 15, 2016. For more information, visit www.eppendorf.com/prize.
