University of Cambridge
Awarded for his work on supramolecular polymers, in particular in aqueous environments.
About the winner
Oren Scherman graduated from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York with a BA in Chemistry in 1999. He then went on to complete a PhD in the area of ring-opening metathesis polymerisation and tailor-made, functional polymer architectures under the supervision of Professor Robert H. Grubbs at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, California.
After finishing his PhD in 2004, Oren moved to the Netherlands to work on supramolecular polymers at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) with Professors E.W. (Bert) Meijer and Rint P. Sijbesma.
In October 2006, Oren moved to Cambridge to take up his current position as a University Lecturer and Next Generation Fellow in the Melville Laboratory for Polymer Synthesis at the Department of Chemistry.
His research group is interested in developing dynamic functional materials through aqueous self assembly.
