Ms. Baier completed her research in the field of synthetic RNA-biology in the lab of Dr. Meike Saul. Mr. Hamburger was supervised by Prof. Johannes Kabisch, head of the research group Computer-aided Synthetic Biology. Both master's theses are particularly impressive due to their high scientific standards, their degree of difficulty and their exemplary experimental implementation. The award ceremony will be held online in early February 2021. The awards will be presented by H. Schiller and R. Klein as representatives of the Junior-GBM-Darmstadt together with Prof. Göringer as the spokesperson of the GBM.
