Science Celebrities

Charlie meets Dr. Don Eigler [IBM] and Prof. Eric Heller [Harvard University].
While working for IBM, Dr. Don Eigler designed and built the first low-temperature STM and used it to manipulate individual atoms for the first time. Prof. Heller is well known for his seminal work on time-dependent quantum mechanics and quantum chaos.

Ashleigh Baber meets Prof. Dr. Gerhard Ertl [Nobel Prize Winner 2007].
Prof. Dr. Ertl received the 2007 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his pioneering surface science work elucidating the mechanism of the Haber-Bosch process.

Felicia Lucci meets Prof. Dr. Gerhard Ertl [Nobel Prize Winner 2007].
Prof. Dr. Ertl received the 2007 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his pioneering surface science work elucidating the mechanism of the Haber-Bosch process.

Charlie Meets Prof. Harry Gray [Cal. Tech.] at the Beckman Young Investigators Conference.
Harry Gray devised Ligand Field Theory, pioneered methods for understanding electron transfer in biological systems and is now focusing on methods for efficient capture of solar energy.

Charlie meets Professors Ben Feringa [Nobel Prize Winner 2016] and David Leigh [University of Manchester] at the International Symposium on Single Molecular Machines and Motors in Toulouse, 2013.
Professor Feringa is internationally renowned for his group's work on catalysis, chirality and molecular machines. Professor Leigh is a world leader in molecular level machines and motors including most recently the demonstration of sequence-specific peptide synthesis by an artificial small-molecule machine.

Charlie meets Prof. Gabor Somorjai [U. C. Berkeley]
Professor Somorjai is a leading researcher in surface chemistry and catalysis, authoring over 1,000 publications and developed techniques such as sum frequency generation spectroscopy, high pressure STM, and high pressure XPS.

Charlie meets Prof. Roderick MacKinnon [Nobel Prize Winner 2003].
Professor MacKinnon received the 2003 Nobel Prize for advances in understanding potassium channels and the atomic basis of selective ion conduction.

Felicia Lucci meets Prof. William Phillips [Nobel Prize Winner 1997].
Prof. Phillips and Prof. Chu shared the Nobel Prize in Physics with Claude Cohen-Tannoudji in 1997 for the development of methods to cool and trap atoms with laser light.

Felicia Lucci meets Prof. Steven Chu [Nobel Prize Winner 1997].
Prof. Phillips and Prof. Chu shared the Nobel Prize in Physics with Claude Cohen-Tannoudji in 1997 for the development of methods to cool and trap atoms with laser light.

Charlie meets Professor Kenso Soai [Tokyo University of Science], in Prague, 2014.
Professor Kenso Soai is the inventor of the Soai Reaction in which the product molecule itself catalyses the reaction yielding very high enantiomeric excess.

Charile meets Prof. Barry Sharpless [Nobel Prize Winner 2001].
Professor Barry Sharpless won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2001 for his work on chirally catalysed oxidation reactions.

Charlie meets Professor John Polanyi [Nobel Prize Winner 1986], in Monterey CA, 2014.
Professor John Polanyi is best known for the development of reaction dynamics which has provided a much more detailed understanding of how chemical reactions take place.

Felicia Lucci meets Prof. Harold Kroto [Nobel Prize Winner 1996].
Professor Harold Kroto won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1996 for the discovery of fullerene carbon compounds.

Felicia Lucci meets Prof. William Moerner [Nobel Prize Winner 2014].
Professor William Moerner won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2014 for the optical detection of single molecules.

Felicia Lucci meets Prof. Saul Perlmutter [Nobel Prize Winner 2011].
Professor Saul Perlmutter won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2011 for discovering that the expansion of the universe is accelerating.

Felicia Lucci meets Dr. Richard Roberts [Nobel Prize Winner 1993].
Dr. Richard Roberts won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1993 for the discovery of split genes.

Felicia meets Professor George Whitesides [Harvard University] and is featured on the NEACS "The Nucleus" May 2016 Edition.
Professor George Whitesides is a multidisciplinary chemist known for his work in NMR, molecular self-assemble, soft lithography, microfluidics, and nanotechnology. The impact of his work can be seen by his many patents and h-index of 163.

Colin meets Sir Fraser Stoddard [Nobel Prize Winner 2016].
Sir Fraser Stoddard won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2016 for the design and synthesis of molecular machines.
