The Friends of the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) donate a PhD Award in order to support young scientists. The award honours excellent PhD theses from the field of life sciences that have been completed at a partner  university of the HZI.

The PhD Award is endowed with 1.000 Euros and is presented during the Inhoffen Lecture, which takes place once a year.

Proposals can be made by all mentors who supervised a PhD in life sciences at the HZI or at a cooperating university.
