International Symposium Functional Biointerfaces - 100th Anniversary of Georg Manecke - Oct. 4-5, 2016

News from Jun 14, 2016

The international symposium on “Functional Biointerfaces“ takes place October 4-5, 2016, at the Freie Universität Berlin, Germany. One highlight of the international symposium will be the award ceremony for the Georg-Manecke-Award 2016, awarded by the GDCh for young researchers, honoring the 100th birthday of Georg Manecke (1916-1990) at his work place, the Freie Universität Berlin (1964-1984).

The symposium is organized by the interdisciplinary Focus Area Nanoscale Functional Materials (NanoScale) and the Collaborative Research Center “Multivalency” (CRC 765) with a focus on functional biointerfaces and biointerface processes.

The symposium covers three major research aspects from chemical biology, including:

  • Development of novel bioorthogonal strategies as well as the synthesis of multifunctional architectures and their spatial organisation.
  • Investigation of artificial extracellular matrix and their interaction with biological objects, such as cells or pathogens.
  • New methods for the physical and theoretical analysis and description of selected biointerface processes.
