Chemistry Professor Rainer Haag Honored with ERC Advanced Grant from the European Research Council

News from May 04, 2022

Chemist Prof. Dr. Rainer Haag from Freie Universität Berlin has been awarded a prestigious Advanced Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). He will receive funding of 2.85 million euros for his project to conduct research on an innovative method for the prevention of virus infections. The funding will begin in 2023 and run for five years, according to the ERC in Brussels. Chemist Rainer Haag says, “My approach is to investigate and work with self-assembled surface-active supramolecules that efficiently and dynamically mimic the surface of the respective host cell of a virus. I am convinced that in the near future multivalent supramolecular nanosystems will offer a possibility to efficiently block even rapidly mutating viruses and prevent infections.”
