Introducing the FEBS Medal Lecturers

Agnieszka Chacinska, Albert J.R. Heck and Jan Konvalinka are now featured on the FEBS Network.

FEBS awards three medals for outstanding achievements in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology or related sciences to distinguished senior scientists: the Theodor Bücher medal, the Sir Hans Krebs medal, and the Datta medal. The 2018 awardees – Agnieszka Chacinska, Albert J.R. Heck and Jan Konvalinka, respectively – will be presented with their medals and deliver plenary lectures at the 43rd FEBS Congress. Can't wait? They are now featured in posts on the FEBS Network, where they share something of their research highlights, motivations and approaches.

“There is a moment when the things and observations start to fall into a reasonable hypothesis or even a model. This is the moment I love.”

Albert J.R. Heck
To pick your favourite paper is as difficult as picking your favourite child…”

Jan Konvalinka“We work on so many projects at the moment that I do not know what exactly ‘my field’ is anymore.”
