2017 Covestro Distinguished Lectureship

Professor Brigitte Voit Leibniz-Institut für Polymerforschung Dresden, Germany 1514169234 Since 1997 Brigitte Voit is head of the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry at the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research (IPF) Dresden, as well as professor for “Organic Chemistry of Polymers“ at Technische Universität Dresden (TUD). In addition, since 2002, she is heading the IPF Dresden, a large public research institute hosting about 480 people, as Managing and Scientific Director. She received her PhD in Macromolecular Chemistry in 1990 from University Bayreuth, Germany, in the field of photoactive polymers. After postdoctoral work in 1991/1992 at Eastman Kodak in Rochester, USA, she joined the Technische Universität München where she received her habilitation degree in Macromolecular Chemistry in 1996. Her major research interest is in the synthesis of new functional polymer architectures by various synthetic approaches covering topics like dendritic polymers, hydrogels, functional block and graft copolymers, as well as biofunctional polymers and functional polymers for optoelectronic applications. Brigitte Voit is very active in the community and in review work (DFG, EC); she is a board member of several polymer (e.g. Kuratorium Angewandte Chemie). For the period 2014/2015 Brigitte Voit had been elected as president of the European Polymer Federation and in 2015 she was awarded with membership in acatech (Akademie der Technikwissenschaften).
