Professor Achim Müller, University of Bielefeld, Germany, has received the highest scientific award of the European Union. He was awarded a €1.2 million Advanced Grant by the European Research Council (ERC) to support his research on nanoclusters and capsules for three years.

Achim Müller studied chemistry and physics at the University of Göttingen, Germany, where he received his Ph.D. on Experimental Thermochemistry in 1965. He completed his Habilitation in 1967 at the same university. In 1971 he became professor at the University of Dortmund, Germany, and since 1977 he has been Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Bielefeld.

Müller’s research focuses on the synthesis, characterization, and interactions of structurally well-defined porous spherical metal-oxide based nanocapsules, and related nano-assemblies, as well as their applications for encapsulation and as artificial cell environments.
