The Society’s newly elected Vice President, Tim Liedl, is a Professor for experimental physics at Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich. He holds a Ph.D. degree in Physics from Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich. Tim’s term will begin at FNANO23, and he will assume the position of President at FNANO25 and Past President at FNANO27.
My lab is exploring the use of DNA-based nanostructures to study biophysical questions, such as measuring molecular forces with DNA origami devices and demonstrate active propulsion with micro- and nanoswimmers. At the same time we are studying the fascinating and versatile properties of DNA-assembled plasmonic and photonic materials for applications in physics and material sciences.
ISNSCE VISION STATEMENT:
I would like to see ISNSCE providing a stimulating and welcoming environment for researchers with all possible backgrounds in our inherently interdisciplinary field of research. One central goal is to inspire the next generation of scientists to pursue nanoscience with passion and dedication. Through supporting the collaborative spirit of our community and by encouraging young researchers to realize their innovative ideas, we aim to promote and advance the understanding, exploration, and application of self-assembly principles in particular and nanoscience as a whole. This way we can foster to the development of new devices, materials, and systems that can revolutionize healthcare, computer science, energy conversion, sustainability, and many other fields.
