Dr. Stephanie Kullmann has been awarded the Ernst and Berta Scharrer Prize of the German Society of Endocrinology (DGE) for her research on intranasal insulin in the brain. The scientist works at the DZD partner Institute for Diabetes Research and Metabolic Diseases of Helmholtz Zentrum München at the University of Tübingen.

The prize has been awarded annually since 1999 by the Neuroendocrinology Section of the German Society of Endocrinology and is sponsored by Lilly Deutschland GmbH. This award is named after the two researchers Ernst and Berta Scharrer, who are regarded as the founders of neuroendocrinological research.
