Often referred to as the ‘Swiss Nobel Prize’, this year’s Swiss Science Prize Marcel Benoist goes to Ursula Keller for her groundbreaking work in short-time laser physics. This year’s Swiss Science Prize Latsis is awarded to Kerstin Noëlle Vokinger for her interdisciplinary research activities in the fields of law, medicine and technology.
