At the Helmholtz Association’s annual conference Fabian Theis (ICB), Timm Schröder (ETH Zürich, Basel), Carsten Marr (ICB) and Laleh Haghverdi (EMBL-EBI, UK) have received the 2017 Erwin Schrödinger Prize, endowed with 50,000 €. In an interdisciplinary collaboration they have shown how data from individual blood stem cells can be used to determine their fate. With this award, the Helmholtz Association and the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft, a donors' association for the promotion of humanities and sciences in Germany, honor outstanding scientific or technically innovative achievements in areas bordering on various disciplines in medicine, the natural sciences, and engineering in which representatives of at least two disciplines have participated.
