Lars Ernster, born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1920, moved to Sweden in 1946. After completing his PhD at the Stockholm University in 1956, he became a professor of biochemistry in 1967. He became a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in 1974 and was a member of the Nobel Committee for Chemistry from 1977 to 1988.
After Lars' death in November 1998, the Department Board decided to establish a lecture series in his memory, the "Lars Ernster Lecture in Bioenergetics". Each year the Board invites a world-leading lecturer working in a scientific area related to Lars Ernster's research activities.
This year, SFB1078 spokesperson Prof. Joachim Heberle will give the lecture on Friday, December 15th.
