CLASSY featured in the EU GrantsAccess Science Stories

CLASSY was featured in the EU GrantsAccess Science Stories issue last July, 2021. Prof. Helma Wennemers and PhD candidate Jasper Möhler (ETH), explain the role of their team within the CLASSY project and their contribution in terms of peptide expertise.

If you’re curious to hear about their progress in the lab, how they’re collaborating with the other CLASSY partners and what the next steps are in the project, read the full interview “Increased sustainability through combinational chemistry” (in English) and watch the accompanying video (in German).

CLASSY PhD student awarded Scholarship Fund of the Swiss Chemical Industry (SSCI)

PhD student Alena Budinska was recently awarded a scholarship that supports her research on ”Stereoselective Organocatalytic α-​Alkylation of Aldehydes’’ as part of Prof. Helma Wennemers group at ETH Zürich, and through which she contributes to the CLASSY project. The Scholarship Fund of the Swiss Chemical Industry (SSCI) is a joint initiative of ETH Zürich with Janssen AG, Clariant International AG and Givaudan Schweiz AG. It is annually awarded to outstanding doctoral students from the Department of Chemistry and Applied Sciences at ETH.

Our warmest congratulations to Alena for this recognition of top-notch research.

New CLASSY conference presentations

Our partners are making the most of the virtual conference opportunities, with several posters already presented earlier this year and more to come in the next weeks and months. Find all of the latest CLASSY results on our dedicated page, here.
