Chemist Dr. Pavel Levkin from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) received the 2015 Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize. This award, issued by the German Research Foundation (DFG), is the most important prize for young researchers in Germany. Research in cell/surface interaction, developing biofunctional materials and extremely hydrophobic surfaces along with nanoparticles for targeted medication and gene transport are among Pavel Levkin’s scientific focal points. He achieved great scientific success with the synthesis of lipid-like molecules to modify the genes of cells.
