Awards - Heine-Medin Award



The Heine-Medin Award honors scientific work that promotes our understanding of virus diseases. It was originally conceived in 1983 by the European Society Against Virus Diseases, one of the predecessors of the ESCV. Public institutions, universities, commercial companies, and individuals have contributed to this medal by donations. The medal is named after the German orthopedic surgeon Jacob Von Heine (1800-1879) and the Swedish pediatrician Oscar Medin (1847-1927). Both have made significant contributions to the recognition of poliomyelitis as a disease and have provided guidelines for its management. In the past, poliomyelitis has been referred to as the Heine-Medin disease. The Heine-Medin Award will be awarded to a young promising scientist who presents a paper at the Annual Meeting of the ESCV. The rules are mentioned separately.
