The Dr H.P. Heineken Prize for Biochemistry and Biophysics is awarded by the Dr H.P. Heineken Foundation and supports outstanding research in biochemistry and biophysics.
Every other year, the Dr H.P. Heineken Foundation awards one of the most prestigious prizes conferred in the Netherlands: the Dr H.P. Heineken Prize for Biochemistry and Biophysics. In doing so, the Foundation draws attention to the importance of these two disciplines, including the biochemical and biophysical aspects of microbiology and the physiology of seed germination. The prize does not cover technical aspects of the physiology of seed germination.
The Dr H.P. Heineken Prize for Biochemistry and Biophysics consists of a crystal trophy and USD 200,000. The trophy, a replica in miniature of the microscope invented by Anton van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723), symbolises the progress of biochemistry and biophysics since the prize was established in 1963. The trophy was designed by W. Heesen and is produced by Koninklijke Nederlandsche Glasfabriek Leerdam.
