Speaker: Prof. Dr. Benjamin List

Benjamin List is Director of the Department of Homogeneous Catalysis at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung in Mülheim a. d. Ruhr. He co-founded the field of asymmetric organocatalysis – a process that can be used to construct molecules. For the discovery of this third class of catalysts, he was awarded the 2021 Nobel Prize in Chemistry together with Dave MacMillan.

The lecture is part of the Symposium New Frontier in Chemical Biology. The Symposium is a joint event of the SFB1309, the C-NATM Cluster and the CAS Research Focus Nucleic Acid Therapeutics.

A registration is required. You can find more information on the CAS website.

The Center for Advanced Studies at LMU provides a forum for scientific exchange and discussion that bridges the divide between the established disciplines. Its activities are designed to promote all forms of collaborative research and to stimulate interdisciplinary communication within the University. In addition, it facilitates the integration of visiting scholars and scientists into the academic life of the University.
