"Sharing scientific discoveries is important"

Immunologist Ana-Maria Lennon-Duménil from Paris has recently held a lecture at the Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Excellence. PhD students from the “Women in Science” network at the Cluster have talked to her about the importance of sharing, the unstable state as a scientist and the question of how to deal with gender bias.

For the first time, chemists at the Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Excellence have successfully developed a catalytic method to formally add elemental fluorine across simple, feedstock chemicals known as alkenes with control over the 3D structure. The study has been published in the journal “Angewandte Chemie”.
