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.
