MEET ROBERT PHIPPS

Robert graduated from Imperial College London and moved to the University of Cambridge to complete his PhD with Prof. Matthew Gaunt. Following this, he worked at the University of California, Berkeley with Prof. F. Dean Toste and took up his current position as a Royal Society University Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge in late 2014. In 2017 he was awarded an ERC starting grant and is a recipient of the 2019 RSC Harrison-Meldola Memorial Prize.

MEET TOBIAS RITTER

Tobias Ritter received his undergraduate education in Braunschweig, Germany, Bordeaux, France, Lausanne, Switzerland, and Stanford, US. He has performed undergraduate research with Prof. Barry M. Trost at Stanford, obtained his PhD working with Prof. Erick M. Carreira at ETH Zurich in 2004, and was a postdoc with Prof. Robert H. Grubbs at Caltech. In 2006, Tobias was appointed as Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard, promoted to Associate Professor in 2010, and to Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology in 2012. Since 2015 he is director at the Max-Planck-Institut fuer Kohlenforschung in Germany, since 2018 as the Managing Director.

​MEET G BERNADES

Gonçalo Bernardes, after completing his DPhil degree in 2008 at the University of Oxford, UK, under- took postdoctoral work at the Max-Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Germany, and ETH Zürich, Switzerland, and worked as a Group Leader at Alfama Lda in Portugal. He started his independent research career in 2013 at the University of Cambridge as a Royal Society University Research Fellow, and in 2018 he was appointed as University Lecturer. He is also the Director of the Chemical Biology unit at iMM Lisboa. In 2016, Gonçalo’s research was recognised with the award of the Chem. Soc. Rev. Emerging Investigator Lectureship. His research group interests focus on the use of chemistry principles to tackle challenging biological problems for understanding and fighting cancer.
