“Luminescence is a fascinating phenomenon”

Prof. Cristian A. Strassert is fascinated by the interaction between light and matter. As new Professor of Coordination Chemistry and Molecular Imaging in the Cells-in-Motion cluster of excellence, he is, among other things, developing strategies designed to fight diseases with the aid of light.
