Humboldt, very Humboldt

Materials chemist Lei Jiang of Beihang University, China, is a recipient this year of a Humboldt Research Award. The €60000 (about $72000) award is in recognition of his accomplishments as a scientist and his influential role in Asian materials chemistry. It will allow him to strengthen his scientific ties with colleagues at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (MPICI) in Potsdam, Germany.
