GfH Annual Meeting 2003 in Marburg,
1-4 October 2003
In 2003, the German Society of Human Genetics for the
first time conferred the Society’s highest decoration
– the “GfH - Medal of Honor”. The
“GfH - Medal of Honor” represents the first
German award explicitly recognizing contributions to
the field of human genetics. Therefore, this award highlights
the area of human genetics as a field of expertise increasingly
gaining a central position in medicine and representing
an important link to the life sciences.
The first laureates most impressively represent the
meaning of this award. Arno Motulsky and Friedrich Vogel
are distinguished scientists who enjoy an international
reputation and who have made significant, cooperative
contributions to the reorientation and development of
human genetics in Germany.
