The international Heinrich Wieland Prize honours outstanding research on biologically active substances and systems and their clinical importance in the fields of chemistry, biochemistry and physiology. The award is endowed by the Boehringer Ingelheim Foundation and named after Heinrich Wieland (1877-1957), a Nobel laureate in chemistry. Since 1964 the prize has been awarded annually by a scientific Board of Trustees. Three of the Heinrich Wieland Laureates received the Nobel Prize later on.
The nomination process for the 2013 Heinrich Wieland Prize is closed. The award ceremony and laureate lecture will take place on October 10th, 2013, in Munich, Germany.
