Dutch Design & Synthesis Guest Lecture: Prof. Bert Klein Gebbink

Prof. Gebbink visited Syncom to present his latest results on bio-inspired development of practical oxidation catalysts. In particular, his talk focused on the use of enzyme-inspired iron catalysts as green alternatives in oxidation processes of industrial relevance. Klein Gebbink completed his PhD studies under the supervision of Prof. Nolte at Nijmegen University. Following his graduation, he spent two postdoctoral years at Stanford University in the research group of Prof. Stack. In October 1999 he became assistant professor at Utrecht University. In 2006 he was appointed to professor of Homogeneous and Bio-inspired Catalysis at Utrecht University, where he is head of

Dutch Design & Synthesis Guest Lecture: Prof. Huib Ovaa

Prof. Huib Ovaa visited Syncom as a guest of our Dutch Design & Synthesis lectures. His talk, entitled “Development of assays and drugs to target the ubiquitin system”, disclosed his latest research in the development of tools to investigate biochemical processes related to cancer. In particular, his group focuses on the development of techniques to profile cellular enzymatic activities associated with ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like systems. Prof. Huib obtained his PhD cum laude in the University of Leiden. Afterwards, he moved to the Harvard Medical School where he carried out a postdoctoral research stay in the group of Prof. H. L.
