Thieme Award 2017 for the Most Innovative Planta Medica Original Paper now decided!

Starting in 2013, Thieme awards every year the most promising paper published in Planta Medica in the previous year. The decision of the jury – the Editors of the journal – is strictly based on scientific quality and on the interest that the paper has met with in the scientific community. The prize money is EUR 1.500. This year, a paper by Haron et al., "Activities and Prevalence of Proteobacteria Members Colonizing Echinacea purpurea Fully Account for Macrophage Activation Exhibited by Extracts of This Botanical", has won the race. In a moving award ceremony, Professor David Pasco of the University of Mississippi received the prize during the 2017 GA Congress in Basel, Switzerland. Congratulations!
