The prizes were awarded for research work in the fields of oncological diagnostics.
The competition, which is run by Eckert & Ziegler AG in cooperation with the EANM and awards prizes of €1,000 each, was held for the tenth time. A jury of seven EANM members chose the following five laureates from a total of 689 entries:

Sandra Heskamp, Netherlands: Monitoring tumor PD-L1 expression with microSPECT/CT during radiotherapy
Bogdan Mitran, Sweden: Radiocobalt-labeled anti-HER1 affibody molecule DOTA-ZEGFR:2377 for imaging of low HER1 expression in prostate cancer pre-clinical model
Christoph Rischpler, Germany: First experience using LMI1195 in patients with the suspicion of pheochromocytoma or paraganglioma
Marcus Unterrainer, Germany: TSPO-PET for high-grade glioma imaging using the novel ligand [18F]GE-180 - first in human results in the course of radiotherapy
“With its Travel Award, Eckert & Ziegler assists young scientists in making their research results in the field of medical imaging available to a broad public,” explained Dr. André Heß, Member of the Executive Board of Eckert & Ziegler AG and Head of the Radiopharma Segment.
