In front of almost 80 guests CUI has honored Prof. Dr. Anna Krylov, Professor of Chemistry and Gabilan Distinguished Professor of Science and Engineering at the University of Southern California as Mildred Dresselhaus Prize Recipient 2017. The ceremony within CUI’s New Year’s Reception in the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science was transmitted via Skype to Los Angeles, since Anna Krylov was prevented from coming to Hamburg; however, research stays with CUI are already being prepared.
CUI spokesperson Prof. Horst Weller opened the New Year’s Reception and outlined the cluster’s development.
The dean of the MIN faculty at Universität Hamburg, Prof. Heinrich Graener, gave a short welcoming speech and presented the certificate.
Prof. Robin Santra (Universität Hamburg, DESY) gave the honorary speech for senior awardee, Prof. Anna Krylov. The junior awardee will be presented at a later time.
Ingeborg Adler, Public Outreach Officer, commented on the “Arts & Science” exhibition built up in the foyer and invited the guests to have a look and participate in the “Arts & Science” puzzle. They were then invited to food and drinks.
