Announcement of the 4th Research Award of the Foundation Plants for Health


In 2014, GA has established the Foundation „Plants for Health“ aiming at supporting highly motivated and talented research groups. We provide start-up funds, which help to develop collaborative projects leading to promising developments in the area of medicinal plant and natural product research including the search for innovative lead compounds, exciting product ideas and novel pharmacological, clinical and other approaches in medicinal plant and natural product research. 


As the foundation successfully has started to receive donations and additional endowments from different sources, we are again able to support researchers from our (still limited) revenues. In order to be eligible, you must be a member of the GA at the time of the application and for the entire duration of the project.


The foundation offers a research subsidy of
5.000 €
for a high quality, early career project in the field of medicinal plant research.


The grant aims to support post docs in their own ongoing research project. Applicants have to demonstrate the innovative and promising character of the project by two already published (or accepted) papers in high impact journals (as first or last author).


Applications with an informative and concise description of the project (1 page), reprints of the two papers, and a CV, need to be sent to the chair of the foundation, Prof. Dr. Rudolf Bauer (E-mail: by Feb 28th 2020.


The awardee will be announced by end of March 2020. It is expected that results will be presented at the GA meeting 2021 (Bonn, Germany).


We are looking forward to your exciting concept notes and to many applications.
