报告人简历: 
Kurt Gothelf studied chemistry at Aarhus University, Denmark, and obtained a PhD degree in organic synthesis and asymmetric catalysis in 1995 from the group of Professor Karl Anker Jørgensen. He was a post doc a Duke University in 1997-98 with Professor Michael Pirrung where he studied bioorganic chemistry. After returning to Aarhus University he gradually build up his independent research group in organic surface chemistry and became assistant professor. He soon started working on DNA-directed chemistry and in 2007 he established the Center for DNA Nanotechnology (CDNA) with a major grant from the Danish National Research Foundation. The same year he was promoted to full professor. In 2012 he established the European School of DNA Nanotechnology, a PhD school funded by the Marie Curie ITN program, with leading European researchers in DNA nanotechnology. The aim of the Gothelf Laboratory is to study and exploit the self-assembly properties of molecules and molecular systems. The focus has in particular been on the self-assembly properties of DNA-based systems for the preparation of sensors, protein labeling, molecular electronics and for the making of complex nanostructures. The research is founded on organic synthesis and we have prepared modified nucleotide analogous, linkers for new bioconjugation methods, molecules for macromolecular assembly studies, DNA synthesis, polymers and graphene nano-ribbons. Kurt Gothelf is currently the president of the International Society for Nanoscale Science, Computation and Engineering (ISNSCE).
