30.01.2023 | "CSI:Saarbrücken - Tatort, Labor und Gerichtssaal"
On 30 January, the JungChemikerForum Saar, the association of chemistry students and doctoral students at Saar University in the Saar chapter of the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker e.V. (Society of German Chemists), organised a lecture by Dr. Fabian Altermann from the Bundeskriminalamt Wiesbaden. Under the slogan "CSI:Saarbrücken - Tatort, Labor und Gerichtssaal", Mr Altermann reported on his work at the Forensic Institute of the BKA and explained some exciting cases for which, among other things, new methods for the chemical analysis of traces from the crime scene were developed by him and his team and already known ones were ingeniously applied in order to be able to convict the perpetrators.

27.06.2022 | Elias Gießelmann participates in the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting
It is rare for a student or young scientist to have the opportunity to meet Nobel Laureates in person and to be inspired by their research achievements. It is even rarer to meet several Nobel Laureates at the same time in one place. However, a conference in Lindau, which has existed since 1951, makes this possible for a selected group of young scientists. This year, Elias Gießelmann, PhD student at the in the group of Prof. Guido Kickelbick, was chosen as one of 600 participants from all over the world to attend the meeting. More information about the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting can be found here.

22.03.2022 | ADUC Chemiedozententagung in Saarbrücken
From 22. to 24. March 2022, the Chemiedozententagung of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Deutscher UniversitätsprofessorInnen der Chemie (ADUC) took place in Saarbrücken as an on-site event. Despite the still obligatory pandemic counter-measures, the more than 300 participants enjoyed about 80 scientific live-lectures from all areas of chemistry in three parallel sessions. The sunny weather on all three days did the rest so that Guido Kickelbick as Chair of the local organizing committee could draw a very positive conclusion.
