Environmental Prize of the Viktor & Sigrid Dulger Foundation

Heidelberg ecotoxicologist Dr Lisa Gölz recently received the Environmental Award from the Viktor and Sigrid Dulger Foundation. The 10,000 euro award recognises her pioneering doctoral thesis at the University of Heidelberg, which deals with the effects of chemicals on the hormone system of fish, in particular the thyroid gland.

In addition to new findings in the field of biomedicine, the dissertation also makes important contributions to animal welfare and environmental protection as well as the handling of chemicals in general, according to the award statement. It is awarded by the Heidelberg Center for the Environment (HCE), the university's environmental science research centre.
