 Speakers


Professor Jeremy Sanders; Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Institutional Affairs; University of CambridgeJeremy Sanders

Jeremy Sanders was born in London, UK, in 1948. He obtained his B.Sc. in Chemistry at Imperial College, London, before moving to Cambridge to study for his PhD; he was fortunate to work on lanthanide shift reagents with Dudley Williams. After a postdoctoral year at Stanford working on protein NMR he was appointed to a junior faculty position in Chemistry back in Cambridge. He became a full Professor in 1996 and was Head of Chemistry in Cambridge from 2000–2006. Away from Chemistry, he led the committee responsible for Cambridge University’s 800th anniversary year-long celebrations in 2009. Since January 2009 he has been Head (=Dean) of the School of Physical Sciences in Cambridge. In October 2011, he will become Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Institutional Affairs, responsible for developing policy and strategy for the University’s 9000 employees and real estate, and also responsible for key relationships with the City and local region. He will maintain his interests in Chemistry too! Jeremy Sanders became well known in the 1970s and 80s for the development and application of NMR methods in chemistry and biology. During 1979-80, while on sabbatical leave at the University of British Columbia with Laurie Hall, he succeeded in the first complete assignment of the proton NMR spectra of steroids, inspired by Kurt Wüthrich’s use of nOe difference spectroscopy to assign protein spectra. He also used in vivo NMR elucidate the biophysics of some industrially important biodegradable polymers in bacteria. Since then, he has been a pioneer in molecular recognition and supramolecular chemistry, particularly using porphyrins as building blocks in model photosynthetic systems, and using templates to control the synthesis of giant macrocycles. More recently, he has developed the concept of dynamic combinatorial chemistry, and discovered supramolecular nanotubes. His work has been recognized by many awards, including being elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 1995, the Izatt–Christensen Award in Macrocyclic Chemistry in 2003, the 2009 Davy Medal, and the Presidency of the  “Bürgenstock” Stereochemistry Conference in 2011.
