During this year's ACCORD "Synergy of interdisciplinary innovations" - an interdisciplinary conference on drug science, organised by the Medical University of Warsaw on 26-28.05.2022, the Prof. Stanisław Biniecki Award for outstanding scientific achievements in the field of interdisciplinary drug research was presented. We are very pleased to announce that this year the award went to Dr Anna Czarna from the KIND Research Group of Malopolska Centre of Biotechnology of the Jagiellonian University for her work on the application of structural biology in the search for new active substances ex-aequo with Dr Wioletta Rut from the University of Wroclaw for her achievements in developing chemical biology tools for drug discovery.
The awards are presented every two years during the ACCORD Conference. Each of them is awarded to a young scientist from Poland and a young scientist from abroad for outstanding scientific achievements. Stanisław Biniecki was a Polish physician, pharmacist and chemist.
