Mechtild Harf Science Award Ceremony postponed!

Dear Sir or Madam,

DKMS Stiftung Leben Spenden (Foundation for Giving Life) will postpone this year’s DKMS Mechtild Harf Science Award Ceremony from 23 March to 31 August 2020.

As the situation of COVID-19 is evolving and numbers of infections have increased in many countries worldwide, the Spanish Minister of Health issued an official statement on 3 March 2020, suspending all congresses, conferences and seminars in Spain involving healthcare professionals. In accordance with that, EBMT has postponed its 46th Annual Meeting from 22 March to 25 March 2020 to 30 August to 2 September 2020.

We will inform you, as soon as you can register for the award ceremony on 31 August 2020 during the postponed EBMT annual meeting in Madrid, Spain.

Should you have any questions regarding the postponement of the event, please do not hesitate to contact us at

Thank you for your understanding.
