Robert Bing Prize to Cristina Granziera, Mira Katan Kahles and Johannes Gräff!


The Robert Bing Prize 2022 goes to three remarkable clinical and experimental neuro- scientists: Cristina Granziera and Mira Katan Kahles, Professors of Neurology at the University Hospital in Basel, are each distinguished for their work on biomarkers for the diagnostics and monitoring of disorders such as multiple sclerosis and stroke. Gräff is professor at EPFL. Cristina Granziera bridges the gap between biomedical engineering and clinical application as researcher at the Department of Biomedical Engineering. Each prize is worth CHF 20 000.

The Prize, bestowed every two years by the Swiss Academy of Medical Scienes (SAMS), originates from a generous bequest of Basel neurologist Robert Bing (1878 – 1956).
In accordance with the donor’s will, the Prize is awarded to researchers who have done outstanding work to improve the recognition, treatment and cure of diseases of the nervous system. The award ceremony will take place on 1 June 2023 in Bern. Further information and an overview of past Bing Prize laureates are available on the SAMS website.
