This multidisciplinary network entitled: “Magnetics and Microhydrodynamics – from guided transport to delivery” (MaMi) bridges the research fields of fluidics and magnetism, by taking advantage of magnetic forces to control local flows and cargo transport inspired by biomimetic systems. Using magnetic sources, as well as high magnetic susceptibility liquids or nanostructures, devices with unique anti-fouling properties and non-slip boundary conditions can be realized. Three PhD positions have been assigned in Strasbourg (application process is closed).Muthulakshmi Sengottuvel will be joining our team in October.
Congratulations to Prof. Jean-Pierre Sauvage!!! He is joining Prof. Jean-Marie Lehn and Prof. Martin Karplus to become a Nobel Laureate in Chemistry. Three Nobel and one Kavli laureate at ISIS!
Welcome to Takuji Adachi (postdoc) and Lafayette de Windt (M2) who both started on August 16th.
Mathieu is joining us as a summer student (L2), working with Nathan Fuchs (M2).
This year we’ll have the pleasure to work with:
- Guillaume Poss (M2)
- Nathan Fuchs (M2)
- Mohamed Raoui (M1)
- Sicen Liu (M1)
- Aghawidya Adipatria (M1)
Jorge Leira Iglesias just started as a PhD student in the group (on Oct. 1st 2014). He will be reinforcing our synthetic efforts….. welcome!
Last week (1-8 Sept. ’14) we had a great visit of or colleague Prof. Masatomo Iwasa from the Aichi Institute of Technology (Japan). We’re trying to address the simulation of dissipative supramolecular systems, which is of great importance to understand our experimental systems.
Three grants were awarded in the last weeks:
- LabEx CSC (chemistry of complex systems)
- USIAS (University of Strasbourg Institute for Advanced Study)
- Region Alsace PhD co-funding
Congratulations to our colleague Prof. Thomas W. Ebbesen for winning the Kavli prize in Nanoscience 2014. Check out this link fore more information http://www.kavliprize.no
