Congratulations to Prof. Dr. Ralf Brandes who is receiving the Robert Pfleger Prize in 2022!
In recognition of his research on the physiology and pathophysiology of the cardiovascular system, in particular the regulation of endothelial cell biology and new vessel formation, Prof. Ralf Brandes has been awarded the Robert Pfleger Research Prize.
Background on the Doctor Robert Pfleger Foundation and its founder: Prof. Dr. Robert Pfleger, the founder of Dr. R. Pfleger Chemische Fabrik GmbH and study companion of the Nobel Prize winner Ernst Boris Chain, has left behind a number of things both for the Franconian region and for German medical research: On the one hand, an exemplary pharmaceutical company where around 330 people work today and which has already received several awards for the responsible treatment of its employees as an employer. On the other hand, a charitable foundation, which he established in 1974 and to which he transferred 100 percent of his company’s shares. The Doctor Robert Pfleger Foundation, named after him, is today one of the most important sponsors of medical research in Germany and also supports social and charitable projects.
