The ESPCR Board has decided this year to launch a new ESPCR award, to recognize and acknowledge scientists who have made outstanding contributions to the field of pigment cell research. The ESPCR Award will be given at the annual ESPCR meetings (every first meeting after the corresponding IPCC conference) and will be associated with a Keynote Lecture of the awarded researcher. The first recipient of the ESPCR Award will be Prof. Alain Taïeb (Bordeaux, France) who will receive this ESPCR distinction at the next ESPCR meeting in Rennes (France). Prof. Alain Taïeb has made extraordinary and numerous outstanding contributions to the field of pigment cell research, in particular to the field of vitiligo research.

With this new award, the ESPCR has established now three (3) different awards, which will be given in consecutive years following this schedule:

  1. ESPCR Award: at every first ESPCR annual meeting after the corresponding IPCC conference
  2. Fritz Anders Lecture: at every second ESPCR annual meeting after the corresponding IPCC conference
  3. H.S. Raper Medal: at every IPCC conference

All awards have been upgraded and harmonized. All awardees would be giving keynote lectures at the corresponding meetings
