The biologist Armelle Corpet and paleo-climatologist Anna Nele Meckler will receive the 2015 Marie Heim-Vögtlin Prize on 23 September 2015 at the SNSF Offices, towards the end of the Advanced Researchers’ Day. The two winners successfully relaunched their research careers with the help of the grant.

​The Marie Heim-Vögtlin Prize - worth 25,000 Swiss francs - is awarded once a year to a MHV-funded woman researcher by the Swiss National Science Foundation. This distinction rewards her remarkable scientific work supported by a MHV grant after a career interruption for family reasons.
