Bildresultat för Lars Ernster

 

Lars Ernster was appointed Professor of Biochemistry at the Department of Biochemistry (currently Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics) in 1967. He built the Department around top scientists working on various aspects of Bioenergetics and brought research within the field to an internationally leading level. These developments also laid the foundation for the present-day Department where several of Lars' previous co-workers are still active scientists.

Lars Ernster was born May 4, 1920 in Budapest, Hungary and came to Sweden in 1946 at an age of 26. He obtained a Ph.D. degree at Stockholm University in 1956 and became professor of Biochemistry in 1967. In 1974 he became member of Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and he was member of The Nobel Committee for Chemistry during 1977-1988.

After Lars passed away in November 1998 the Department Board decided to launch a lecture series in Lars' memory, the "Lars Ernster Lecture in Bioenergetics". Every year the Board invites a world-leading Lecturer working within a scientific area related to Lars Ernster's research activities.
