Joseph has received funding from the Volkswagen Foundation for a project called “Forming catalysts: A basic principle of deep chemistry, life chemistry and life”, which will be carried out in collaboration with Prof. William F. Martin (Düsseldorf) and Dr. Harun Tüysüz (MPI Mülheim/Ruhr). Each lab will roughly equally share the 1.5 M€ in funding. See the press release in English here and in German here. We are looking forward to officially getting the project started!
Joseph has been awarded the 2017 Prix Guy Ourisson by the Cercle Gutenberg. The prize is awarded each year to one or two top researchers under 40 in Alsace in any field. Yay!
Pierre Braunstein awards the prize on March 2, 2018
Our lab received full-page coverage in two regional French newspapers, Dernières Nouvelles d’Alsace and l’Alsace. Check it out!
Here are some pics of the labs (8 hoods, benches and desks, plus an instrumentation room). They are beautiful but empty. Help fill them up starting in September!

Version 1.0 of the website is now up. The lab will launch in September.
