It is a great pleasure to announce that the spring 2014 EPS Emmy Noether Distinction for Women in Physics goes to Dr. Rumiana Dimova from the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam, Germany.
The distinction was awarded to Rumiana Dimova for her distinguished contributions to membrane biophysics, in particular for the important breakthroughs she has made in recent years in two major fields, namely electric field effects on membranes and aqueous microcompartments within vesicles, pioneering the use of new experimental techniques. Leader of a research group in her institute, R. Dimova is a well respected researcher not only in biomembranes but more generally in biophysics and soft matter physics.
The EPS Emmy Noether Distinction for Women in Physics is awarded twice a year (spring and autumn) by a 3 member selection committee nominated by the chair of the EPS Equal Opportunities Committee. The distinction charter can be downloaded on the EPS website.
