JGR Seminar at the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy LMU
DNA, the hereditary material, may have appeared on Earth earlier than has been assumed hitherto. LMU chemists led by Oliver Trapp show that a simple reaction pathway could have given rise to DNA subunits on the early Earth.
The Princess Therese of Bavaria Prize this year will also be awarded to two scientists of the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy, Prof. Dr. med. Lena Daumann and Prof. Dr. med. Olivia Merkel.
The LMU has added a central element to its campus Großhadern / Martinsried. The new building, in which researchers investigate important mechanisms of genetic control, is taking shape.
Professor Thomas Carell, holder of the Chair of Organic Chemistry at LMU, has been elected to the Supervisory Board of BASF SE - one of the largest chemical companies in the world.
