NEWS AND PICTURES FROM YIW 2024!

The 4th Young Investigator Workshop of the EuChemS Chemistry in Life Sciences Division was held on 12 and 13 July 2024 in Galway (Ireland). The YIW 2024 was an officially recognized satellite event of ECC (Dublin, 7-11 July 2024) and included young investigators chosen from researchers nominated by the EuChemS member National Chemical Societies. This YIW edition featured the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2018, Frances H. Arnold, as plenary invited speaker!

We are delighted to share with you some pictures!

 

 

 

WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT!

ChemBioChemistry-Europe

of the EuChemS division of “CHEMISTRY IN LIFE SCIENCES” and CHEMISTRY EUROPE

We are proud to announce the winner of the 1st “ChemBioChemistry-Europe“ of the EuChemS division of “CHEMISTRY IN LIFE SCIENCES” and CHEMISTRY EUROPE.

This prize is dedicated to outstanding young researchers (≤ 7 years after PhD) working in the Chemical Biology area in Europe and starting their independent scientific activity as PIs

Our selection committee designated:

   

      Prof. Dr. Nadja A. Simeth-Crespi

      Georg-August-University of Göttingen, Germany

      as the winner of the 2024 Edition!

The 2024 Award will be presented at the European Chemical Biology Symposium (ECBS), which will be held in Paris in 2025

Nadja A. Simeth studied chemistry at the University of Regensburg, Germany. She graduated in 2014 after working with Morten Grøtli at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, for her Master’s project, in which she investigated a light-controlled kinase inhibitor. Then, she pursued her doctorate studies with Burkhard König at the University of Regensburg, Germany, as a fellow of the German Scholarship Foundation and developed novel light-controllable tools for biological processes. Specifically, she worked on mimetics of Coenzyme Q and Sirtuin inhibitors as well as photoresponsive unnatural amino acids for genetic code expansion. In 2017, she was a visiting researcher with Maurizio Fagnoni at the PhotoGreenLab at the University of Pavia, Italy. Then, she returned to Regensburg and defended her thesis in summer 2018 with summa cum laude. Nadja afterwards joined the group of Ben L. Feringa at the University of Groningen as a postdoc supported by a Feodor-Lynen Fellowship of the Humboldt Foundation. Her research focus moved towards light-controlled supramolecular interactions between small molecules and DNA investigating secondary structure formation and self-assembly.
In autumn 2021, she was appointed as assistant professor at the University of Göttingen, Germany. Her lab’s research is located at the interface of chemistry investigating photochemical tools to probe biological processes. The team employs opto-bioorganic building blocks, light-responsive small molecules, and (photo)chemical labeling reactions to achieve highly-controlled chromo-selective transformation in a complex, biological environment.
