We are delighted to announce the appointment of Gilles Gasser to the Metallomics Editorial Board.
Gilles Gasser was born, raised and educated in Switzerland. After a PhD thesis in supramolecular chemistry with Prof. Helen Stoeckli-Evans (University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland), Gilles performed two post-docs, first with the late Prof. Leone Spiccia (Monash University, Australia) in bioinorganic chemistry and then as an Alexander von Humboldt fellow with Prof. Nils Metzler Nolte (Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany) in bioorganometallic chemistry. Gilles then started his independent scientific career at the University of Zurich in 2010 first as a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) Ambizione Fellow and then as a SNSF Assistant Professor in 2011. In 2016, Gilles moved to Chimie ParisTech, University (France), thanks among other to a PSL Chair of Excellence Program Grant. Gilles was the recipient of several fellowships and awards including the Alfred Werner Award from the Swiss Chemical Society, an ERC Consolidator Grant, the Thieme Chemistry Journal Award, the Jucker Award for his contribution to cancer research and recently the EuroBIC medal for his work on bioinorganic chemistry. Gilles’s research group aims at utilizing the specific physico-chemical properties of metal complexes in different areas of medicinal chemistry.
We welcome the knowledge and expertise Gilles will bring to the journal and we very much look forward to working with him. Welcome to the Metallomics team!
