Prof. Feringa, 2016 Nobel laureate in Chemistry, was sponsored by our group leader at his investiture as Doctor Honoris Causa by the USC
Today, in a beautiful and emotive ceremony, Prof. José L. Mascareñas has sponsored Prof. Ben Feringa at his investiture as Doctor Honoris Causa by the University of Santiago de Compostela.
The joint ceremony (together with Prof. Nicholas A. Peppas investiture) took place at the "Sala Nobre" of the "Colexio de Fonseca", according to the University protocol and rules.
Prof. Ben L. Feringa received the Nobel Prize in 2016 (Chemistry), right after several weeks of his previous visit to Santiago.
One of our senior PIs, Dr. Fernando López, was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Groningen under his supervision (2003-2005). Fernando has been one of the contributors to the great work developed at Prof. Feringa lab.
It was a great time for celebration!
