“I would like to thank you once again for awarding me with this honorable prize. It is important to me to emphasis the advantage it gave me and my family while adjusting to our new location, Mainz, Germany. Our expenses were high, as we had to live in a hotel until we found an apartment to rent, in addition to my spouse having to find a new job, a process that took a few months. During that time, we had to rely on my modest salary alone, and this prize enabled us to stay afloat.” 

Dr. Naama Lang-Yona,
2014 recipient, Max Planck Institute, Germany
