APE to Support Symposium in Honor of Nobel Prize WinnerAdministratorAugust 3rd, 2018
APE is pleased to announce that it has been selected as corporate sponsor for the symposium in honor of Nobel Prize winner Ahmed Zewail. The high-profile event “Ultrafast molecular sciences by femtosecond photons and electrons” will take place during the annual meeting of the ACS Division Of Physical Chemistry in Boston, August 19-23, 2018.
The symposium is aimed at scientists whose work contributes to new discoveries in the research fields of femto-science and ultrafast reaction dynamics.
Marcos Dantus from Michigan State University and Dongping Zhong from Ohio State University are the organizers of this event. Professor Dantus has done outstanding pioneering work by advancing the use of spectrally and temporally shaped ultrafast laser pulses for very practical applications, for example in biomedical imaging. The research of his long-time colleague Professor Zhong is focused on the understanding of the nature of elementary processes in biological systems. For example, he is intensively working on the question of how enzyme-based DNA repair works at the molecular level. APE has been supporting research in these fields for over 25 years with its product developments and is therefore particularly looking forward to this event.
