Alexander Todd-Hans Krebs Lecture

Alexander Todd Hans Krebs Lecture

The Alexander Todd Hans Krebs Lecture was launched in 2006 by the Royal Society of Chemistry and the German Chemical Society . This collaboration aims to further strengthen international relations and scientific exchange between Great Britain and Germany.

Both namesakes worked in the field of biochemistry. Professor Alexander Todd received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1957 for his fundamental work in the field of nucleotides and nucleotide coenzymes. His research made a decisive contribution to the structure elucidation of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA) and laid the foundation for research in the field of genetics.

In 1953 Professor Hans Krebs received the Nobel Prize in medicine. He discovered both the urea cycle and the citrate cycle. Both cycles are now part of the basic knowledge of every doctor and biochemist, which underlines the importance of these discoveries.

Excellent people so far

2023 - Stephen T. Liddle, The University of Manchester/UK

Professor Stephen T. Liddle is Head of the Department of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Manchester. His research covers a wide range of coordination and organometallic chemistry with a particular focus on the lanthanides and actinides, which exhibit unexpected properties and reactivities and are of great importance for nuclear power generation and radioactive waste management. His work focuses on radiochemistry, the study of the chemistry of radioactive elements such as uranium and thorium, and transition metal complexes and their reactivity.

He will be visiting Karlsruhe, Marburg, Würzburg, Erlangen and Regensburg from 14 to 18 October.

2023 - Stefanie Dehnen, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

Professor Stefanie Dehnen is working on the synthesis of new types of metal clusters and their application in energy storage and energy transfer. Through her unique synthesis concept, which expands binary aggregates of main group elements, Dehnen succeeds in developing innovative materials with outstanding conductive properties that are already used worldwide and are anchored in chemistry textbooks.
