2022: Dr Epole Ntungwe (bronze)
The prestigious Egon Stahl-Award 2020 with Bronze Medal is bestowed to Dr. Epole Ntungwe from Universidade Lusófona, Lisboa, Portugal.
With her impressive PhD thesis dedicated to research on natural product drug discovery, Dr Epole Ntungwe focussed on the search for novel lead structures from Plectranthus species to combat multi-drug resistance in cancer. She convinced the jury with her high level contributions adding to the scientific knowledge on the use of natural products to fight MDR in cancer.
2020: Dr S. Vlad Luca (bronze)The prestigious Egon Stahl-Award 2020 with Bronze Medal is bestowed to Dr. Simon Vlad Luca from Technical University of Munich, Germany, in recognition of his valuable contributions to pharmaceutical biology and analytical phytochemistry, in particular his studies on bioactive metabolites from Verbascum ovalifolium Donn ex Sims and Verbascum blattaria L. The Award is dedicated to young scholars up to the age of about thirty whose thesis are of outstanding quality in the fields of pharmaceutical biology and analytical (phyto-)chemistry.
2018: Dr. Emmy Tuenter (bronze)
The winner of 2018 Bronze Award was Dr. Emmy Tuenter from the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Antwerp, Belgium.
Dr. Tuenter obtained her PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Antwerp with an outstanding thesis in the field of Pharmacognosy and Analytical Phytochemistry entitled “Cyclopeptide Alkaloids: Isolation, Structure Elucidation, Antiplasmodial Activity and AGEs Inhibiting Properties”. Her PhD fellowship was granted by the Agency for Innovation by Science and Technology in Flanders
2016: Dr. Gorawit Yusakul (bronze)
The winner of 2016 Bronze Award was Gorawit Yusakul, Thailand.
