With the Albrecht Kossel Prize, the GDCh honors personalities who have done excellent work in the field of Biochemistry . The price was decided by the board of directors in December 2012. In 1910 Albrecht Kossel received the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine "in recognition of the contribution that his work on proteins, including nuclei, has made to our knowledge of the chemistry of the cell".
Professor Marina Rodnina was awarded the Albrecht-Kossel Award in 2020 for her pioneering work on research into protein biosynthesis and the function of the ribosome. The combination of kinetic analyzes with modern structure-based methods led to new models of translation in general and to specific insights into individual catalytic steps of the ribosome.
Professor Beck-Sickinger received the Albrecht Kossel Prize for her fundamental work on understanding the function of peptide hormones, in particular on the interaction of peptides with membrane receptors and on the synthesis of tailor-made peptides with therapeutic relevance.
