Welcome to the Manolikakes Group
We are constantly looking for new, motivated and creative group members. If you are interested in organic chemistry, method development and the synthesis of biologically active molecules, please contact Georg Manolikakes (mail) or visit our labs (Geb. 54; 452-457). Topics for Bachelor theses, F-Praktika and Master-Theses with the oppurtunity to participate in interdisciplinary projects and the option of publication in peer-reviewed journals are available at any time.
