Science Award for graduates of the Humane Medicine master programme
The US American medical and veterinary doctor Richard Seaman enthusiastically dedicated his life to scientific research. In 2018, Seaman died of the consequences of a stroke on a cruise along the Danube during travels through Europe with his wife Judith.
With the Seaman Award, the Seaman family expresses their gratitude towards the team of Univ.-Prof. Dr. Christoph Hörmann at the intensive care unit of the University Hospital St. Pölten for the outstanding treatment and care and Univ.-Prof. Dr. Johannes Streicher, Professor of Anatomy and Developmental Biology at KL for the empathetic support while settling all necessary measures after Seaman´s passing and for fulfilling his last will.
This scientific award will be conferred five times. The prize is awarded during the academic graduation ceremony for outstanding master theses. In September of 2019, it was initially awarded to graduates of the Human Medicine Master Programme in the honour of Dr. Richard Seaman.
KL thanks Judith Seaman and her family for the generous contribution.
