16.06.2016 – The winner of the Max Rössler Prize 2016 is Christophe Copéret. The chemist focuses on the design of functional materials via a molecular approach, such as solid catalysts, derivatization of microelectronic devices, and developing new imaging techniques to visualise individual particles or track metabolites in the human body. “This comes as a complete surprise,” confesses Professor Christophe Copéret. “Never would I have imagined to win this award.”
No one spoke to him about the Max Rössler Prize, or mentioned a possible nomination. He is this year’s winner: ETH President Lino Guzzella presented the Max Rössler Prize 2016 to the chemist during the Thanks Giving event on Wednesday.
