Professor Wolfgang Heckl appointed to supervisory board of MagForce Nanotechnologies AG

Berlin | Posted on December 10th, 2009

Professor Heckl is considered one of the world's leading experts in the field of nanotechnology. His commitment to ongoing research in nanotechnology from its very early stages and to building public awareness of this groundbreaking technology were recognized in 2004, when he received the European Union's Descartes Prize for Science Communication. Dr. Heckl was named professor of experimental physics at the Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) in Munich in 1993, and has been general director of Germany's largest science museum, Munich's renowned Deutsches Museum, since 2004. Since 2009 he has additionally held the Oskar von Miller Professorship in Scientific Communication at the Technical University of Munich (TU München). He is involved in various scientific associations, including the Excellence Network NanoBioTechnology, as well as centers of scientific excellence such as the Center for NanoScience and the GeoBioCenter at the LMU in Munich.

"We are extremely pleased that Professor Heckl, who already in the past has served as a supervisory board member of MagForce Nanotechnologies AG, has declared his readiness to once again provide his active support and scientific expertise to MagForce," said Professor Walter Rust, chairman of the company's supervisory board. "Particularly in the further scientific development of its nanotechnology-based cancer therapy, MagForce will benefit from his close involvement."
