Andreas Zimprich Foundation

Following the death of their son Andreas from a brain tumor in 2007, his parents Marianne and Egon Zimprich were determined to establish a foundation under the auspices of the German Cancer Research Center. Their motivation was to support research in the field of neuro-oncology. Future patients with glioma should have better chances for a successful treatment than their son.

Since 2015 the Andreas Zimprich-Foundation has presented an award for an outstanding medical dissertation in the field of neuro-oncology. The prize money is financed through donations to the foundation and revenues from the endowment capital.
The first winner of the prize was Lukas Bunse, a doctor and scientist at the clinical cooperation unit neuroimmunology and brain tumor immunology at the German Cancer Research Center and the Heidelberg University Hospital. In his doctoral research, Lukas Bunse focused on innovative immunotherapies against glioma.
The Andreas Zimprich-Foundation board of trustees determined that the prize should be awarded every two years. It was once again announced in 2017.
