ESHG Award Laureates


Before 2003, the Mauro Baschirotto Award was presented.

Mauro Baschirotto Award

The Mauro Baschirotto Award, established in 1992 and funded through the philanthropy of the Mauro Baschirotto family, was presented by the European Society of Human Genetics during its annual European Human Genetics Conference in recognition of individual achievements in human genetics. As well as being invited to give the Mauro Baschirotto lecture during the conference, the laureate received a gold ring, specially designed by the silversmiths of Vicenza in Italy and cast in a single copy each year, and a cheque for EUR 1,500 to cover the expenses of participating in the Society's European Human Genetics Conference.
