Mechtild Harf Science Award Ceremony suspended!

Dear Sir or Madam,

DKMS Stiftung Leben Spenden (Foundation for Giving Life) will suspend this year’s DKMS Mechtild Harf Science Award Ceremony.

As the corona crisis is by now affecting the entire world and the situation is still evolving, we have heavy-heartedly decided that this is in the best interest and for the safety of all. The awards ceremony was supposed to take place during the postponed 46th EBMT Annual Meeting on 31 August 2020.

According to current information, the EBMT Annual Meeting 2021 is supposed to take place in Madrid, Spain from 14-17 March. Once this is certain we will inform you about next years’ Mechtild Harf Science Award Ceremony and hope to see you there.

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

Thank you for your understanding.

Stay safe and healthy!
