Professor Nicolas Giuseppone

Nicolas Giuseppone

Professor Giuseppone was trained in asymmetric synthesis as a PhD student (Laboratory of Prof. H.B. Kagan, University of Orsay), and in total synthesis as a postdoctoral fellow (Laboratory of Prof. K.C. Nicolaou, The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, USA). He then entered the field of supramolecular chemistry for his habilitation work by joining, as a Chargé de Recherche CNRS (Assistant Professor), the laboratory of Prof. J.-M. Lehn in Strasbourg.

In 2008 he started his independent career as an Associate Professor by creating the SAMS Research Group at the Institut Charles Sadron (ICS) of Strasbourg.erc

In 2010, he was awarded the ERC Starting Grant from the European Research Council. He was then awarded the Guy Ourisson Prize 2012 for young scientists under 40, and was appointed deputy director of the ICS the same year. In 2013, he was promoted Full Professor of Chemistry at the University of Strasbourg and nominated as a junior member of the Institut Universitaire the France (IUF).

Professor Giuseppone is currently interested in synthetic organic chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, dynamic combinatorial chemistry, systems chemistry, self-assembled functional materials, responsive materials, supramolecular machines for integrated motions, supramolecular polymers, and supramolecular electronics.
