Schleiden Medal

This medal has been awarded since 1955 “to a scientist who has made significant new discoveries to advance cell research”. It is named after the botanist and pioneer of cell theory Matthias Jacob Schleiden (1804-1881) and bears his image. In 2011, the medal was presented to cell biologist Tom A. Rapoport from Boston.
