The Ernst-Ruska Prize has been awarded to Sandra Van Aert during an official ceremony Thursday 24th of August 2017, during the Microscopy Conference 2017 in Lausanne (Switzerland). Every 2 years the German company "Deutsche Gesellschaft für Elektronenmikroskopie" grands the award to a young scientist who achieved pioneering progress in the research of electron microscopy during the past 7 years.
The prize is named after Ernst Ruska, co-inventor of the electron microscope, and is the most prestigious one in this field.
Naomi Winckelmans won the YOUNG SCIENTIST AWARD as well as a POSTER PRIZE during the Microscopy Conference in Lausanne (Switzerland)
