About the IPA/DGUV Award for Young Exposure Scientists
This award, new in 2009 and formerly called the DGUV/BGFA Award, is to foster research in exposure areas with linkages to biomonitoring for superior doctoral students working on their dissertation or in the first year postdoctoral experience and whose doctoral field is exposure sciences, occupational/environmental health sciences, toxicology, biochemistry, biology or a related field. This award from the DGUV* Institute for Prevention and Occupational Medicine (IPA) was created to represent its high regard for the work of Professor Jüergen Angerer in furthering biomonitoring in exposure sciences in Europe and the rest of the world.
* The DGUV (Deutsche Gesetzliche Unfallversicherung – German Social Accident Insurance) is an association of accident insurance institutions. Its members insure over 70 million people against the consequences of occupational, school and commuting accidents and occupational diseases.
