Winner 2023 Eppendorf Award for Young European Investigators

Congratulations to Dr. Maurice Michel on winning the 2023 Eppendorf Award for Young European Investigators for his research on artificial functions of DNA repair enzymes for the treatment of disease. Dr. Michel showed that binding of a small molecule to the active site of a DNA repair enzyme not only increases its activity but also prompts it to carry out a reaction not found in the free protein, leading to enhanced DNA repair after oxidative damage. These ground-breaking discoveries may have far-reaching applications in the treatment of cancer or age-related degeneration.
