Dr. Maresch-Klingelhöffer Prize 2022 Award Ceremony

On 25 October 2022, the Chairman of our Foundation, Dr Jürgen Vogt, presented this year’s Dr Maresch-Klingelhöffer Award to Dr Johanna Theruvath. She was chosen by the jury for this award because of her research success at Stanford University against aggressive brain tumours in children.

With her research, Dr. Theruvath has succeeded in taking an important step towards improving the chances of cure for children diagnosed with the very aggressive Atypical Teratoid/Rhabdoid Tumour (ATRT), which has been difficult to cure up to now. The results of her research work are highly relevant and can now be tested in clinical trials as the next step.

We are very happy for and with Dr. Theruvath for the appreciation of her important work and congratulate her very warmly on the award.

The Dr. Maresch-Klingehöffer Prize has been awarded by the Frankfurt Foundation for Children with Cancer since 2008 for the best work by natural scientists and young scientists (up to 40 years of age) in the field of paediatric oncology and haematology as well as for research areas directly related to the research focus. It is made possible by an endowment made in 2007 by the couple Dr. Otto Maresch and Doris Maresch-Klingelhöffer to our foundation.
