04/10/2016

The 2016 Theodor Frerichs Research Award was presented to Christian Reinhardt on Sunday April 10th at the annual Meeting of the German Society for Internal Medicine in Mannheim.

The Theodor Frerichs Research Award was presented to Christian Reinhardt by Prof. G. Hasenfuss, the president of the German Society for Internal Medicine during the central evening event of the Meeting of the German Society for Internal Medicine in Mannheim. Christian receives this award in recognition of a manuscript from our group that appeared in Cell in 2015. In this work, which was spearheaded by Felix Dietlein, we describe a synergistic interaction between inhibitors of the cell cycle checkpoint kinases Chk1 and MK2, specifically in KRAS-mutant tumors.
