In its latest funding round, the European Research Council (ERC) has awarded Starting Grants to ten junior researchers.
In coming winter semester, for the first time a theoretical and practical preliminary course in chemistry didactics will be held from 19.-28. September 2018 for prospective students of chemistry.
The group of Prof. Thomas Carell from the Department of Chemistry of the LMU has won a million-dollar grant from the Volkswagen Foundation.
Researchers led by Regina de Vivie-Riedle, a professor of theoretical chemistry at LMU Munich, have found indications for a base-independent mechanism that can decrease the photostability of the RNA base uracil.
The hula twist is no longer an unproven postulate: LMU chemists have now directly shown that a light-sensitive molecule can perform this complex photoreaction. This has inter alia implications for the development of novel molecular machines.
Julian Stingele, Professor at the LMU Gene Center, has been awarded the Alfried Krupp Prize for Young University Teachers.
