He won it for his outstanding PhD Thesis with the title Complexes de platine (II) comme ossatures dans les assemblages supramoléculaires (Pt(II)-Complexes as Scaffolds in Supramolecular Assemblies). 

DAAD Scholarship

We are happy to announce that our group member Amrutha won a one year scholarship funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD – Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst).

Amrutha applied with her working title „Design, synthesis and evaluation of cucurbit[n]uril based chemosensors for analyte detection in aqueuos media“ and finally convinced the jury in an interview in India in January.

Additionally to her work promotion starting in October, Amrutha is granted the participation in a DAAD german course from June to the end of September at Carl Duisburg Centre in Munich.
