George de Hevesy Lecture

George de Hevesy lecture

In 2008 the first George de Hevesy lectures took place in both Hungary and Germany. The lecture was established in 2007 by the Magyar Kémikusok Egyesülete (Association of Hungarian Chemists) and the German Chemical Society and has been taking place in both countries since then.

The namesake of the lecture George de Hevesy was a Hungarian chemist who also researched and taught in Germany. De Hevesy was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1943 for developing the radioactive indicator method. He is the discoverer of hafnium and is considered the father of nuclear medicine, which still makes him an important scientist today.

Excellent people so far

2022 - Gyula Tircsó, Debrecen/Hungary

Dr. Gyula Tircsó conducts research in the field of contrast agents. His research focuses both on improving the physico-chemical properties of such contrast agents and, more recently, increasingly on the replacement of toxic Gd complexes with contrast agents based mainly on manganese (II) complexes, which are less dangerous for the living organism, but have the same (or even better) parameters.
