honored for his pioneering achievements in the development and application of optical methodologies in order to visualize and characterize individual biomolecules.
honored for his research on the synthesis of natural product inspired compounds for the fight against pathogenic bacteria and fundamental studies on bacterial virulence.
honored for his research in the field of physical chemistry, in particular for his pioneering studies of the electron movement in molecules at the subfemto second time scale.
honored for his accomplishments in organometallic chemistry, and the late-stage fluorination of biomedically relevant molecules.
honored for his work in the field of functional organic nanostructures and of photo-switchable units.
honored for his work on the development of ORCA - a program package for highly efficient calculation of the electronic structure of large molecules.
