Young researcher awarded Lundbeckfonden’s Talent Prize
This year, Lundbeckfonden’s personal merit award, also called the Talent Prize, is awarded to Doctor and PhD Student Nicolai J. Wewer Albrechtsen.
“I’m very pleased and honoured to receive such recognition for the research we conduct in collaboration with doctors from the Danish hospitals and researchers from international research institutions, including the Max-Planck Institute in Munich and the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston. It’s also a tremendous pat on the back, which motivates and provides drive,” says Nicolai.
The target group for Lundbeckfonden’s Talent Prize is particularly promising researchers under 30 years of age. The Prize is a personal merit award amounting to DKK 100,000.
Leading scientists from Danish universities and other research institutions recommend candidates for consideration. The prize is awarded to 3-5 researchers who have presented particularly promising research on health and medical sciences.
