Adam Mickiewicz University and the City of Poznan invite you to an open lecture, which will be given by a Nobel Prize winner, Professor Jean-Marie Lehn.
The lecture entitled "From Matter to Life: Chemistry? Chemistry!" will be held on September 15, 2015 at 1:15 p.m. at the Lubrański auditorium of the AMU (1 Wieniawskiego Street).
Professor Jean-Marie Lehn of the University of Strasbourg, winner of the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1987, a member of the College de France, founder of ISIS - the Institute of Supramolecular Engineering in Strasbourg, foreign member of the Academy of Sciences. In 2015 he was awarded the Officer's Cross of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland by Bronislaw Komorowski, the President of the Republic of Poland.
Prof. Jean-Marie Lehn is the creator of supramolecular chemistry that is crucial for the development of nanoelectronics and nanotechnology, the field of chemistry dealing with the ability of molecules to create more complex structures with controlled properties.
In addition, the Professor is a virtuoso of chemistry, a wonderful man, a researcher responsible for investigating the truth, and his tremendous scientific success is the result of hard work. Employees of the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan had the opportunity to improve their scientific skills, of common publishing (over 20 original works from the Philadelphia list), and personally meeting many outstanding teachers and practitioners not only from Strasbourg but also other universities (Cambridge, Montreal, Basel, San Sebastian, Montpellier, Karlshrue) and businesses (BASF, Mitsui).
Prof. Jean-Marie Lehn for years supported all the efforts of the Polish academics in attempts for grant applications, was a scientific consultant in one project of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, and the foreign partner in the project "Homing Plus" of the Foundation for Polish Science, both of which were carried out at the Department of Chemistry of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan.
