AWARD-WINNING MEDICINE
Dear Sir or Madam
actually we would like to give you first impressions of this year's Jung Nacht in this newsletter. But SARS-CoV-2 is still keeping the world in suspense and we have moved the award ceremony to 2021. Nevertheless, the current situation shows that medical research is essential. Therefore, we would like to present you the good news of our foundation in this newsletter.
Professor Dr. Dominique Soldati-Favre
WELCOME: NEW MEMBER OF BOARD OF TRUSTEES 
We are pleased to welcome Professor Dr. Dominique Soldati-Favre to our Board of Trustees with immediate effect. She has headed the Institute of Microbiology and Molecular Medicine at the University of Geneva since 2020, after previously working at the same university from 2011 to 2019 as Vice Dean for Research and Careers. Her current research projects are about decoding the molecular mechanisms that ensure the gliding motility and invasion of the host cell by the Toxoplasma and Plasmodium and parasite metabolism governing chronic infection.

Professor Dr. Christian Büchel
OUTSTANDING: ERC ADVANCED GRANT FOR BOARD OF TRUSTEES CHAIR
Our Board of Trustees Chair Professor Christian Büchel has been awarded the Advanced Grant of the European Research Council (ERC) for the second time. With his research project "PainPersist", the UKE researcher is exploring how acute pain develops into chronic suffering. Over the next five years, the project will receive a total of 2.5 million euros under the EU's "Horizont 2020" funding programme.

Professor Dr. Tobias Moser
IMPRESSIVE: OPTICAL COCHLEAR IMPLANT
Professor Tobias Moser, Ernst Jung awardee 2017, and his research team succeeded in combining gene therapy in the cochlear with light stimulation from a multichannel optical cochlear implant for the first time. This could result in a fundamental improvement in hearing with an optical cochlear implant in the future, as light can be better narrowed down spatially compared to electricity, thus enabling a more precise stimulation of the auditory nerve.
