The Hella Bühler Prize – which comes with a prize money of 100,000 euros – is granted by Heidelberg University and is one of the most valuable awards in the field of cancer research. It goes back to the dentist Dr Hella Bühler who bequeathed her fortune to the University with the stipulation that a prize in cancer research should be awarded from the proceeds. Since 2004, this research award named after her has supported young researchers at Heidelberg University as well as young researchers who are associated with the university in scientific cooperation to continue and deepen their promising research work. With her engagement, Dr Bühler set an important example for the medical research in Heidelberg. The majority of the award winners are still active in cancer research, today. For many of them, receiving the Hella Bühler Prize was an important part of their scientifc careers.
