ESMTB announces the annual Reinhart Heinrich Doctoral Thesis Award to be presented to the student submitting the best doctoral thesis within the current year 2017 in any area of Mathematical and Theoretical Biology.

Professor Reinhart Heinrich (1946 – 2006) started his research career in theoretical physics and then moved into biochemistry, becoming a full professor and head of theoretical biophysics at the Humboldt University, Berlin in 1990. He is considered a father of the field that is now named Systems  Biology, since he investigated various topics such as modelling metabolic networks and metabolic control theory, modelling of signal transduction networks, nonlinear dynamics as applied to biological systems, protein translocation, lipid translocation, vesicular transport, and even DNA repair. Reinhart Heinrich was always searching for the principles that underlie observations, looking for different perspectives and connecting theoretical abstraction with biological evidence. In this way, he inspired numerous students, gave them insight and direction for future research in modern mathematical and theoretical biology, and organized a large number of memorable conferences. Gratefully acknowledging his stimulating support of our interdisciplinary field and, in particular, his way of guiding students and young scientists, the Board of ESMTB decided to offer a Doctoral Thesis Award annually to commemorate Reinhart Heinrich and his legacy in mathematical and theoretical biology.

Award 
A summary of the thesis receiving the award will be published as the lead article in the 2018 issue of
the European Communications in Mathematical and Theoretical Biology. The award includes:
· an invitation to present a lecture at the forthcoming triennial ESMTB Conference
or, alternatively,
a limited travel grant by ESMTB for a scientific visit of the recipient’s own choice,
· 1 year's free membership of ESMTB.
· A voucher for Springer books
 
Application
Potential applicants may be nominated by any ESMTB member. To nominate a person for the
Reinhart Heinrich Doctoral Thesis Award, the following information should be submitted to
Philip Maini (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.):
  1. Name, address, phone number, affiliation, and email address of the nominator.
  2. Name, address, phone number, affiliation, and email address of the nominee.
