TNG’s leader Theodor Rüber won the GEROK award 2019 of the BONFOR research commission of the medical faculty of the University of Bonn. The BONFOR research commission provides funding for young clinical scientists. The goal perspective of BONFOR programs is to prepare young researchs to obtain third-pary funding. Theodor had successfully applied for two years of funding for his own position and has also obtained funding for a junior research group. Part of the TNG went to Cologne at night to invest the prize money in the vibrant Cologne pub scene.
