Prof. Dr. Nicolas Giuseppone

University of Strasbourg
External Senior Fellow
Oktober 2017 - September 2019


Nicolas Giuseppone received his PhD in asymmetric catalysis (laboratory of Prof. H.B. Kagan), performed a post-doctoral research in total synthesis (laboratory of Prof. K.C. Nicolaou), and entered the field of supramolecular chemistry as an Assistant Professor (laboratory of Prof. J.-M. Lehn, Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1987). In 2008 he started his own research group, became Associate Professor, and was awarded the ERC Starting Grant from the European Research Council in 2010. In 2013 he was promoted Full Professor of Chemistry at the University of Strasbourg (Unistra) and nominated as a junior member of the Institut Universitaire the France (IUF). In 2016, he was promoted Distinguished Professor (Classe Exceptionnelle) at Unistra.

He is deputy director of the Institut Charles Sadron (since 2012), nominated referent for research integrity at the University of Strasbourg (since 2017), and he has been elected as the next director of the Research Federation on Materials and Nanoscience for the Grand Est region (from January 2018).

His research interests are focused on supramolecular chemistry, molecular machines, and functional materials.
