Dr. Elisha Krieg has been awarded "TUD Young Investigator"

Dr. Elisha Krieg, junior research group leader at Institute of Biofunctional Polymer Materials, has been awarded "TUD Young Investigator" at TU Dresden, Faculty of Chemistry and Food Chemistry.

As a TUD Young Investigator he will be able to independently supervise doctoral students and officially act as a reviewer in doctoral procedures - especially for dissertations (co-)supervised by him - and also be appointed as an examiner by the doctoral committee.

Dr. Elisha Krieg studied chemistry at the University of Cologne and the Weizmann Institute of Science. He received his PhD in the area of supramolecular chemistry with Prof. Boris Rybtchinski. Subsequently he investigated analytical and synthetic applications of DNA nanotechnology in the group of Prof. William M. Shih at Harvard.

Dr. Elisha Krieg currently develops DNA-based supramolecular systems and materials for biomedical applications. By combining concepts of DNA nanotechnology with traditional polymer chemistry and molecular biology, he aims to transfer the programmability and reconfigurability of nanometer-scale DNA devices to the macroscopic level.
