He is working in a team of chemists, biologists and physicists to find novel molecules for clients in the pharmaceutical industry.
ZoBio is one of the early adaptors of fragment-based drug discovery, which will be introduced during the talk. Our first plenair lecturer this year will be professor Douglas Stephan! Professor Stephan is a professor at the university of Toronto. He has published more than papers and has received Canadian and international awards, and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, the Royal Society of London and many more.
Professor Stephan researches Frustrated Lewis Pairs, which were discovered by him and his team in They discovered that simple combinations of Lewis acids and bases designed to avoid acid-base quenching can activate H2. This has led to development of metal-free routes to the addition of hydrogen to a wide range of organic compounds. His expertise lies at the crossing point between bioinorganic chemistry, photochemistry, and liposomes.
His current research interests are light-activated anticancer metallodrugs, photocatalysis, and coordination chemistry at lipid bilayers. She is responsible for the scientific research projects in the conservation studios of the Rijksmuseum. He has also invented 16 patents, and co-founded three companies.

Bas de Bruin presently focuses at the development of new tools in homogeneous catalysis, using metals in unconventional oxidation states, second coordination sphere effects, supramolecular cages and unconventional ligands. Mysteries and tales about vampires are widespread. These mysterious creatures of the night are somehow fascinating. Vampires are sexy, even though you might not survive their bite. This presentation will deal with the chemistry of blood sucking.
Some other fascinating aspects of blood will also be discussed. Interestingly catalysis plays a central role in various biosynthetic processes associated with this bloody theme. Her group develops synthetic methodologies for target-oriented preparation of inorganic and hybrid inorganic-organic materials. These materials are used in molecular separations and sensing, catalysis and as proton conductive membranes.
Sander van Kasteren obtained his PhD in organic chemistry from the University of Oxford, where — under the tutelage of Prof. Benjamin G. Davis, he worked on the site-selective modification of proteins, as well as on the synthesis of imaging agents for inflammation.
At present the research in his group is aimed towards understanding the interaction of the immune system with the outside world. Bioorthogonal chemistry has been a major breakthrough technique in the study the interaction of this host-pathogen interaction. Through hijacking of the cell wall or protein synthesis biosynthetic machinery, so-called bioorthogonal analogues of cell wall components and amino acids have been incorporated into bacteria. Reuter and students as a PostDoc. His time in the Netherlands started in when he moved to Leiden to work with Prof.
Kroes on modeling electron-hole pair excitations. Energy conversion at interfaces is at the centre of the rapidly growing field of basic energy science. At the macroscopic scale, engineers routinely employ continuum theories including empirically determined parameters — with at best limited atomistic understanding.
At the atomic scale, the vibrational lifetime of small adsorbates can provide detailed information about the energy exchange with the surface. Ilja Voets received an MSc degree in Molecular Sciences from Wageningen University in and a PhD degree from the same university in for her research in the field of colloid science on the electrostatically driven co-assembly of block copolymers.
Ice-binding proteins IBP facilitate survival under extreme conditions in diverse life forms. IBPs in polar fishes block further growth of internalized environmental ice and inhibit ice recrystallization of accumulated internal crystals. Algae use IBPs to structure ice, while ice adhesion is critical for the Antarctic bacterium Marinomonas primoryensis. Tony Davis gained a B. His research focuses on the development of supramolecular systems with potential for biological applications, especially carbohydrate receptors and transmembrane anion transporters.
The promotion of anion transport across cell membranes is a key objective in supramolecular chemistry. Cation transporters such as Valinomycin and Gramicidin are widely used for biological research, and have powerful biological activity. However, effective counterparts for transporting anions are not yet routinely available. There is particular interest in employing such anionophores as treatments for conditions caused by defective anion channels, notably the widespread genetic disease cystic fibrosis.
This lecture will describe our progress towards practical anion transporters based on scaffolds with 1,5-diaxial arrangements of H-bond donor groups. Going for academia, pursuing grants and hoping for a permanent position or go for an industry position?? For most of you, this is a difficult question. But there is another option, start your own business!! A start-up is the most exciting, and rewarding way to use your knowledge and creativity in a science in an entrepreneurial environment. The interaction with top scientists from industry, highly skilled co-workers, lawyers, business, sales, market and patents is a very thrilling mix that makes every day worthwhile.
In this talk I will give you a flavor of what we do at InCatT and which challenges we face in catalysis from a company point of view. Inorganic nanoparticles NPs have the ability to self-organize into variety of structures. Analysis of experimental data for different types of NPs indicates a general trend of self-assembly under a wider range of conditions and having broader structural variability than self-assembling units from organic matter. Remarkably, the internal organization of self-assembled NP systems rival in complexity to those found in biology which reflects the biomimetic behavior of nanoscale inorganic matter.

In this talk, I will address the following questions:. What are the differences and similarities of NP self-organization compared with similar phenomena involving organic and biological building blocks? What are the forces and related theoretical assumptions essential for NP interactions? What is the significance of NP self-assembly for understanding emergence of life? What are the technological opportunities of NP self-organization? Self-organization of chiral nanostructures will illustrate the importance of subtle anisotropic effects stemming from collective behavior of NPs and non-additivity of their interactions.
Chirality transfer from circularly-polarized photons to NPs and its relationship to the origin of homochirality on Earth, spontaneous compartmentalization protocells , and dissipative nanoassemblies. Nicholas A. Kotov, graduated from Moscow State University. His PhD thesis combined experimental and computational description of photo-induced charge transport at liquid interfaces. He moved to Syracuse University in and started working on 2D nanoparticle superlattices and layer-by-layer assembly LBL. After becoming an Assistant Professor at Oklahoma State University, he focused on the studies of biomimetic self-organization phenomena at nanoscale.
At the University of Michigan he applies nanoscale assembly phenomena to engineering of new materials. Kotov is a founder of several start-up companies that commercialized nanomaterials for military, biomedical and energy technologies. The chemistry of the first-row transition-metals is highly diverse with a multitude of different reactivity and property patterns.
This richness results from the partial occupation of the shell of d-orbitals, which leads to different oxidation and spin states. Of course, having a different number of unpaired electrons has a direct effect on the structure, magnetism, and reactivity of molecules. The majority of these studies is based on experiment, and computational chemistry plays more and more an important role, in giving a description of e.
Here I will give an overview of the tools needed and how these can be used for determining oxidation states, and where the proton goes in a high-valent iron IV -hydroxo complex.

As a PhD student he investigated the structures and modes of action of bacteriocins bacterially produced antimicrobial peptides. After completing his studies in Alberta he moved to the University of California, Berkeley to pursue postdoctoral studies. In Martin was awarded the prestigious ERC Consolidator Grant allowing him to expand and strengthen his research group.
These approaches are typically rooted in synthetic chemistry and are broadly applied towards developing new bio chemical strategies for addressing a number of biomedical challenges. Work in the Martin ranges from developing new antibiotics for combatting drug-resistant bacteria to developing new inhibitors and molecular tools with which to study epigenetic processes implicated in cancer and other diseases.
Absorption of light brings molecules into an activated state. From this state radiative processes can occur, but much more interesting are the nonradiative, dark processes in which the photon energy is transformed into other forms such as mechanical and chemical energy. This third meeting is dedicated to the discussion of topics that have recently gained prominence and that will likely dictate the direction of this field in the following decade.
