successfully defended his PhD thesis. His work on “In vitro and in vivo investigation of dendronized streptavidin and fluorescent nanodiamonds, two flexible nanosystems efficiently crossing the blood-brain barrier to improve nanotheranostics in neurological disease treatment” was awarded the highest distinction "summa cum laude". Congratulations Pierpaolo!
Stephan Fischer (Graduate School in Medicine, Ulm University) defended his PhD on “Characterization of the uptake mechanism of bacterial protein-toxins and their inhibition by human peptides”. He is awarded summa cum laude for his exemplary work. Congratulations Dr. Fischer!
The AD-gut annual meeting will take place at MPIP in the Hermann Staudinger Lecture Hall from October 11th to 12th 2018. In addition, on the second day, occurs a workshop focused on Microbiome.
The AD-gut project
has received funding from the Horizon 2020 Framework Program of the European Union and Weil group has been involved in this project since 2016.
October 2018: Christopher Synatschke has been elected to the Early Career Board of the ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering. Congratulations Christopher!
The Early Career Board Announcement
September 2018: Prof. Tanja Weil has been appointed as a new Associate Editor of the ACS Nano.
March 2018: Congratulations! Weina Liu successfully defended her PhD thesis “Functionalized nanodiamond for biomedical applications”
February 2018: Congratulations! Yu Tokura successfully passed his Ph.D. examination.
January 2018: Prof. Tanja Weil is becoming a member of the European Academy of Sciences (EurASc).
The Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research inaugurated the new Diamond Laboratory
thanks to the great support of the Walter and Sibylle Kalkhof-Rose Foundation.
In the new rooms of the Mainz Institute, a team headed by Prof. Tanja Weil purposefully produces nanometer-sized diamond particles. The task is to synthesize and functionalize these special nanodiamonds under high pressure and high temperature from carbon in the best possible way - with the aim of being able to use them in medicine for the diagnosis and therapy of cancer. More about this event in Max Planck Journal 1/2018 (only German) and here.
January 2018: Prof. Tanja Weil is elected into the Editorial Board of the Angewandte Chemie International Edition.
