The Danish Chemical Society PhD Prize 2015 - Christian Bech Rosen
This year’s Danish Chemical Society PhD Prize has been awarded to Christian B. Rosen former iNANO PhD student.
Christian did his PhD studies in the group of Prof. Kurt V. Gothelf at iNANO, Aarhus University, where he developed methods to site-selectively label proteins – in particular antibodies – with DNA and small-molecules. This work was published in Nature Chemistry with Christian as first author.
During a visit in the group of Prof. Hagan Bayley at University of Oxford Christian also demonstrated the use of biological nanopores to site-specifically detect protein phosphorylation sites at the single-molecule level – a study published in Nature Biotechnology with Christian as first author.
Additionally, Christian has co-authored several other high-ranking research articles as well as two patent applications and a book chapter.
Christian is currently employed as postdoctoral fellow in Prof. Matthew B. Francis’s laboratory at UC Berkeley through funding from the Villum Foundation.
