ESPCR AWARDS

The ESPCR has established three types of awards:

ESPCR Award

The ESPCR Award has been established by the ESPCR Board in 2018 to recognize and acknowledge scientists who have made outstanding contributions to the field of pigment cell research. The ESPCR Award is given at the annual ESPCR meetings (every first meeting after the corresponding IPCC conference) and it is associated with a Keynote Lecture of the awarded researcher. Researchers awarded with this ESPCR Prize automatically become ESPCR Honorary Members.
