To network the various life science disciplines and thus enable top-level research at the Kiel location: These are the goals pursued by the Center for Molecular Biosciences (ZMB) at Kiel University with its state-of-the-art research infrastructure. An important part of these activities is the active promotion of young scientists, which is intended to support interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research by young scientists from the life sciences in Kiel.

The flagship of these efforts are the so-called "ZMB Young Scientist Grants", which were awarded for the third time today, Friday, December 6. The winners of the 2019 award are:
