Mario Ruben was awarded his PhD from the University of Jena in 1998. The following three years he worked in a post-doctoral position with Prof. J.M. Lehn at the “Institut de Science et d’Ingénierie Supramoléculaires” (I.S.I.S.) in Strasbourg dealing with the self-assembly of functional molecules, particularly spin transitions systems. In 2001 he joined the Institute of Nanotechnology in Karlsruhe and he obtained the Habilitation (HDR) from the University of Strasbourg in 2005. His research interests include the design and the construction of molecular devices; in this field Mario Ruben currently leads several European network projects (www.biomach.org; FunSMARTs I and II, MULTIFUN). From 2013 he is a professor for Chemistry; Chair „Molecular Materials“, Karlsruher Institut für Technologie. He published more than 120 scientific publications, 9 Nature or Nature family of journals (~4.500 citations, H-37).
