Congratulations and special honor for our IMPRS alumna Fan Wu
from the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research in Bad Nauheim
She received the Peter Hans Hofschneider Prize
for her doctoral thesis where she discovered that asthma disease in humans is associated with a significant reduction in the presence of 5-hydroymethylcytosine (5-hmC) in airway smooth muscle cells.
The Max Planck Society honours outstanding work in the field of molecular medicine every two years with the Peter Hans Hofschneider Prize.
