Three remarkable members of Molecular Biophysics Stockholm celebrated completion of their doctoral degrees this spring.
Though their presentations had to be revised to meet public-health recommendations, including video-casting to off-site opponents and committee members, all three delivered polished, informative defenses of their respective theses to enthusiastic remote audiences.
- Petter Johansson, Department of Applied Physics, KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Molecular processes in dynamic wetting, 16 April 2020. Opponent: Professor Guillaume Galliero, University of Pau and Pays de l’Adour, France.
- Björn O Forsberg, Department of Biochemistry & Biophysics, Stockholm University. Fast and reliable alignment and classification of biological macromolecules in electron microscopy images, 24 April 2020. Opponent: Professor Sriram Subramanian, University of British Columbia, Canada.
- Ali Narangifard, Department of Medicine, Karolinska Institute. Molecular structure of the human skin’s barrier: elucidation, formation and utilization, 5 May 2020. Opponent: Professor Johan Engblom, Malmö University, Sweden.
We regret missing out on traditional festivities in honor of these fine colleagues, and hope to properly celebrate with them soon.
