Kirstine Meyer prize awarded to Malene Ringkjøbing Jensen
Malene Ringkjøbing Jensen has been awarded the prestigious Kirstine Meyer prize for her research within protein chemistry and biology using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. She is currently a postdoc at the IBS in the group of Dr. Martin Blackledge (Protein Dynamics and Flexibility by NMR).
Kirstine Meyer (1861-1941) was Denmarks first female Ph.D in physics in 1909 (from the University of Copenhagen) . After her death, colleagues and friends established the prize in her memory. The Kirstine Meyer prize is awarded at least every second year to a young promising young Danish physicist or chemist..
