Die Hermann-Staudinger-Lecture Series ist eine im Jahr 2008 von der School of Soft Matter Research initiierte Vortragsreihe, zur der die naturwissenschaftlichen FRIAS Schools zwei- bis dreimal jährlich meist internationale Nobelpreisträger zu einem Vortrag nach Freiburg einladen. Die Vortragsreihe wurde nach dem Freiburger Nobelpreisträger Prof. Hermann Staudinger benannt, der von 1926-1951 an der Freiburger Universität lehrte. Staudinger's groundbreaking elucidation of the nature of the high-molecular weight compounds he termed Makromoleküle paved the way for the birth of the field of polymer chemistry. Staudinger himself saw the potential for this science long before it was fully realized. He was appointed a Professor at Albert-Ludwig University Freiburg in 1926 and founded the first polymer chemistry journal in 1940. In 1953 Staudinger received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his discoveries in the field of macromolecular chemistry.
