Rubén Martín: Winner of the Chem Soc Rev Pioneering Investigator Lectureship 2018

On behalf of the Chem Soc Rev Editorial Board, we are pleased to announce the winner of the 2018 Chem Soc Rev Pioneering Investigator Lectureship – Rubén Martín. Our warmest congratulations to Rubén for being selected as the very first Chem Soc Rev Pioneering Investigator!

Rubén was born in Barcelona. He was awarded his PhD in 2003 at Universitat de Barcelona, where he worked with Professor Anotoni Riera on the total synthesis of glycosidase inhibitors. During his independent career, he has received the 2010 RSEQ Young Investigator Award, the 2011 Thieme Chemistry Journal Award, the Eli Lilly Young Research Investigator Award, the 2017 Marcial Menno Lectureship Award and the 2017 OMCOS Award.

He began his independent career at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung, where he worked with Prof Alois Fürstner on the application of novel iron catalysts for cross-coupling and Alder-ene type reactions. He then moved to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he worked with Prof Stephen L. Buchwald and developed new synthetic strategies for metal-catalyzed C-C and C-N bond-forming reactions. In 2008, he joined the Institut Català d’Investigació Química (ICIQ) as a group leader, and in 2013 he was promoted to Associate Professor.

He is currently an ICREA Research Professor at the ICIQ and his group’s research interests focus on the discovery and development of synthetically useful organometallic methodologies.

As part of the Lectureship, Rubén will present a lecture at three locations over the coming year, with at least one of these events taking place at an international conference, where he will be formally presented with his Pioneering Investigator Lectureship certificate. Details of his lectures will be announced in due course – keep an eye on the blog for details.

Rafal Klajn: Winner of the Chem Soc Rev Emerging Investigator Lectureship 2017

On behalf of the Chem Soc Rev Editorial Board, we are pleased to announce the winner of the 2017 Chem Soc Rev Emerging Investigator Lectureship – Rafal Klajn from the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel. Our warmest congratulations to Rafal!

Rafal was born in Poland, where he completed his undergraduate studies. He was awarded his PhD in Chemical and Biological Engineering in 2009 at Northwestern University, where he worked with Professors Bartosz A Grzybowski and Sir J Fraser Stoddart on fabricating new hybrid materials incorporating inorganic nanoparticles and molecular switches. For his doctoral research, he was awarded the 2008 International Precious Metals Institute Student Award, the 2010 IUPAC Prize for Young Chemists, and the 2013 Victor K. LaMer Award from the American Chemical Society.

Rafal Klajn

He began his independent research career in November 2009 at the Department of Organic Chemistry, Weizmann Institute of Science, as a tenure-track Assistant Professor directly after obtaining his PhD degree. Since then, his group has worked on nanoscale reactivity and self-assembly – incorporating photo-responsive moieties into nanoporous solids, working with superparamagnetic nanoparticles of various shapes and demonstrating that cubic nanoparticles of iron oxide could spontaneously assemble into helical materials, and developing the concept of “dynamically self-assembling nanoflasks” capable of accelerating chemical reactions using light, working with flexible metal-organic (coordination) cages that can encapsulate diverse organic molecules ranging from fluorescent dyes to nonpolar pharmaceuticals, among other projects.

He is currently an Associate Professor at the Weizmann Institute of Science and now focuses on creating synthetic out-of-equilibrium systems and “life-like” materials, not only to develop innovative functional materials, but also to tackle what he deems as one of the most important and fascinating problems – the origin of life.

As part of the Lectureship, Rafal will present a lecture at three locations over the coming year, with at least one of these events taking place at an international conference, where he will be formally presented with his Emerging Investigator Lectureship certificate. Details of his lectures will be announced in due course – keep an eye on the blog for details.

2015 ChemSocRev Emerging Investigator Lectureship winner presents at Columbia University

Professor Walsh being awarded with his Lectureship.

The winner of this year’s ChemSocRev Emerging Investigator Lectureship, Professor Aron Walsh (University of Bath, UK) kicked off his Lectureship tour earlier this week by presenting a seminar on hybrid perovskites at Columbia University, USA. At this seminar, Aron was also awarded with his official Lectureship certificate and he was “very honoured to have been selected”.

Aron’s research is in the area of computational materials science and it focuses on developing novel functional materials with potential applications in energy conversion, storage and transport, and for the development of thermoelectric, ferroelectric and photovoltaic devices.  As part of his Lectureship tour, Aron will also present at the 43rd Conference on the Physics and Chemistry of Surfaces and Interfaces in Palm Springs, USA on 17-21 January 2016, and give a special lecture at ETH Zurich, Switzerland  on 7 February 2016.

Also of interest: Take a look at our recent ChemSocRev themed collection on Applied Computational Chemistry, guest edited by Israel Fernández and Fernando P. Cossío.
