The Nobel Prize in Chemistry
Nobel Laureate held lecture at CHE
On December 12th the CHE school had a distinguished visit by
Nobel Laureate Berard Ferringa who held a lecture. He started by thanking the audience for bringing him back to his normal environment science after spending days of celebrations with royalties and suchlike.
The lecture was about molecular switches and motors and the potential use of these, such as directed cancer treatment and antibiotics that are activated in vivo and then switched off as they leave the body (and hence not increasing the resistance to abtibiotics).
