The Friedrich-Wilhelm-Bessel Prize is awarded to young researchers of the highest level in recognition of the excellence of their research. The Humboldt Foundation awards about 25 Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Prizes to young scientists who are already recognized as researchers in their field. These young scientists are invited to work on the research projects of their choice in cooperation in Germany for a period of 6 months to a year.
The process of ice recrystallization figures prominently into the cryoinjury that cells and tissues sustain during preservation at subzero temperatures and conventional cryoprotectants fail to protect cells from this injury. As a result, the ice recrystallization inhibitors (IRIs) developed by the Ben laboratory are uniquely positioned to improve cryopreservation outcomes and enable emerging regenerative and cellular therapies by permitting the safe and effective short and long-term storage of these cellular products.

The IntelliSyn Pharma Research Excellence Award (formerly the Boehringer Ingelheim Research Excellence Award) is presented to a scientist residing in Canada who has made a distinguished contribution to medicinally relevant organic or biophysical chemistry while working in Canada.
CNC-IUPAC established a program of travel awards in 1982 to enable young scientists who are currently working at a Canadian institution to present their research at IUPAC-sponsored conferences outside of Canada. With the support of the CNC/IUPAC travel award, Dr. Newman will travel to Heidelberg, Germany to attend the 20th IUPAC International Symposium on Organometallic Chemistry Directed Towards Organic Synthesis (OMCOS).
