The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2018 was awarded to Prof. Frances H. Arnold for pioneering the directed evolution of enzymes. Enzymes can be tailored for their use in chemical, pharmaceutical, food, feed, and laundry industries by directed evolution.

Like every year, RWTHextern offers special lectures held by experts on the particular Nobel Prize topics. This year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry will be explained by Prof. Ulrich Schwaneberg. He has worked as PostDoc in the group of Nobel laureate Prof. Arnold at the California Institute of Technology – Caltech from 1999 to 2001. We kindly invite interested people from all fields, students as well as their parents to visit the lecture “Sesam öffne Dich – gesteuerte Evolution für eine nachhaltige Wirtschaft” to learn more about this year’s Nobel laureate and directed evolution.

The lecture will take place on December, 5th at 7 p.m. in HKW1, Wüllnerstraße 1, Aachen.
