• Blackbox-Batterie - Adelhelm Group treibt alternative Batteriekonzepte voran

Wenn es um Stromspeicher für Elektrofahrzeuge und für den stationären Einsatz geht, führt bisher kein Weg an Lithium-Ionen-Akkus vorbei. Doch weltweit treiben Forscherteams alternative Batteriekonzepte voran. So auch die Arbeitsgruppe von Philipp Adelhelm, die am Institut für Chemie der Humboldt-Universität (HU) und am Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) neue Materialansätze verfolgt.

• Junior Award for Dr. Anselm Schneider

Anselm Schneider enabled several (literal) breakthroughs in his doctoral thesis in the Hackenberger laboratry (FMP), most importantly to enable the cellular delivery of proteins and antibodies into living cells. For his achievements, he was recognized with the junior award 2021 of the Max-Bergmann Circle. Well done, Anselm!

• Several awards for Dr. Marc-André Kasper

After studying chemistry at the HU Berlin, Marc-André joined the Hackenberger lab at FMP for his doctoral studies. For his results on developing new reactions for the modification of antibodies he was recently awarded the Disseration-Award of the GDCh Biochemistry Division and the Humboldt-Preis 2020 of the HU Berlin. Now he continues to use his results to develop new antibody-conjugates to enhance cancer therapy in the start-up Tubulis. Congratulations Marc!

• Best doctoral thesis in Adlershof 2020 / Beste Adlershofer Promotion 2020

The Adlershof dissertation award was presented to Dr. Fani Madzharova on May 4th. In her work, the laureate from the Department of Chemistry examined the extent to which weak nonlinear optical processes can be amplified with the help of nanoparticles.
Der Dissertationspreis Adlershof wurde am 4. Mai an Dr. Fani Madzharova verliehen. Die Preisträgerin aus dem Institut für Chemie untersuchte in ihren Arbeiten, inwieweit sich schwache nichtlineare optische Prozesse mithilfe von Nanopartikeln verstärken lassen.
