What Would Emil Fischer Do Today?

View Full Event Details

Emil Fischer, the great explorer of carbohydrates, peptides, enzymes and nucleosides, died 100 years ago. His labs in Berlin were the nucleus of key innovations in peptide synthesis, carbohydrate and nucleoside chemistry. The scientists of Berlin are celebrating his pioneering work and the dawn of a new scientific discipline with a One-Day-Symposium.

At the historically significant setting of the Kaiserin-Friedrich-Haus and the Emil Fischer Lecture Hall, selected speakers will update Emil Fischer’s ingenious approach and lead us through the contemporary world of chemistry-driven exploration of life.
