First Simmet Prize for Dr Cesare Galli
The Italian scientist Dr Cesare Galli has become the
first scientist to be honoured with the €50,000 Simmet Prize for Assisted
Reproduction.He was awarded the prize at the International Congress on
Animal Reproduction (ICAR) in Budapest.
His numerous significant scientific publications in the field of Assisted
Reproduction, as well as his work during his presidency of the AETE (Association
Europeenne de Transfer Embryonnaire), exemplify his efforts for technological
progress and knowledge transfer from research to practice.
This award is a memorial honouring the lifetime and legacy of Dr Ludwig
Simmet, founder of the German AI and bio-engineering company Minitube, who
carried out visionary and innovative work in that field of study.
The prize will be awarded every four years on the occasion of future ICAR
meetings, to recognise an active research scientist for outstanding basic and
applied research in the field of assisted reproduction of animals, published
during the previous five years.
