Dirk Hellhammer Award

2021 ISPNE Dirk Hellhammer Award 

The International Society of Psychoneuroendocrinology (ISPNE) has awarded the prestigious Curt Richter Award for 40 years to a distinguished line of young investigators in the field of psychoneuroendocrinology.

The Curt Richter Award has now been re-named, to honour our friend and colleague Dirk Hellhammer (1947-2018) who has passed away on the 1st of December 2018. Dirk has been a pioneer of psychoneuroendocrinology, contributing some of most important and enduring progress in our field, from the Trier Social Stress to the characterisation of the cortisol awakening response. Moreover, he headed the society as its president from 2002 to 2005, and received the ISPNE Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012. Read more about Dirk here.


The Dirk Hellhammer Award will be given by the Society during the 2021 Virtual Meeting, September 7-9, 2021. The award consists of an honorarium, an award certificate, a plaque, a travel grant of up to US $ 1,000 to attend the meeting, and exemption from membership dues to the Society for three years, which includes a subscription to the Journal.
