LeanaTravaglini_photo (002).jpg

Leana Travaglini obtained her PhD in Chemical Sciences in 2014 from the University of Rome “Sapienza”, where she worked on the synthesis and self-assembly study of amphiphilic molecules under the guidance of Andrea D'Annibale and Luciano Galantini. She then joined the group of Luisa De Cola at the Institut de Science et d'Ingénierie Supramoléculaires of the University of Strasbourg. During this period, her research focused on developing new mesoporous (organo)silica materials. Leana joined Wiley-VCH in 2018.

About her talk: What happens when a manuscript is submitted to a journal? What is the role of a scientific editor in the peer review process? What happens once a manuscript has been accepted? This presentation will try to demystify the publishing process and answer some of the questions that editors are most frequently asked by giving an overview of the professional editors’ daily work at Chemistry Europe journals.

Prof. Timothy Noël received in 2004 his MSc degree (Industrial Chemical Engineering) from the KaHo Sint-Lieven in Ghent. He then moved to Ghent University to obtain a PhD at the Laboratory for Organic and Bioorganic Synthesis (2005-2009). Next, he crossed the ocean to work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as a Fulbright Postdoctoral Fellow with Professor Stephen L. Buchwald. Returning to Europe, he became assistant professor in 2012 and associate professor in 2017 at Eindhoven University of Technology. In 2020, he was promoted to Full Professor at the University of Amsterdam where he is the Chair of Flow Chemistry. His research interests are flow chemistry, homogeneous catalysis and organic synthesis. His research on flow chemistry was recognized with several awards, including the DECHEMA award (2017), the Hoogewerff Jongerenprijs (2019) and the IUPAC-ThalesNano Flow Chemistry Award (2020). He is the editor in chief of Journal of Flow Chemistry.

Prof. Richard Hoogenboom is heading the Supramolecular Chemistry (SC) group at Ghent University that was founded based on his appointment as associate professor in 2010 (full professor since 2014). He obtained a PhD from Eindhoven University of Technology under supervision of Prof. Ulrich S. Schubert and performed postdoctoral research with Prof. Martin Möller (RWTH Aachen) and Prof. Roeland Nolte (Radboud University Nijmegen). Prof. Hoogenboom has published more than 430 refereed scientific articles and received 20,000+ citations (h-index 66) and is listed as inventor on 21 patent families. He is currently editor-in-chief for European Polymer Journal and associate editor for Australian Journal of Chemistry. Prof. Hoogenboom is the recipient of the inaugural RSC Polymer Chemistry award (2015), the PI IUPAC young investigator award (2016), the Prometheus award for research from Ghent University (2016), the ACS Macromolecules/Biomacromolecules Young Investigator award (2017) and the ACS Carl S. Marvel Creative Polymer Chemistry Award (2021). Since January 2018, Prof. Hoogenboom is also cofounder of Avroxa BVBA that commercializes poly(2-oxazoline)s as Ultroxa®.

Sebastiaan Loriaux_A-social media (003).jpg

Sebastiaan Loriaux is recruiter chemie & life sciences en werkt inmiddels bijna een jaar voor CheckMark Labrecruitment. Toch heel iets anders dan waar hij eerst voor was opgeleid in zijn hbo studie Biologie en Medisch Laboratoriumonderzoek.
Sebastiaan over zijn keuze: "Vanuit mijn opleiding ben ik opgeleid als laborant binnen de biomedische wereld en na mijn afstuderen zocht ik dus eigenlijk automatisch ook naar mijn eerste laboratoriumbaan. Ook bij CheckMark, waar ik me had ingeschreven. Toen werd ik gebeld door een van de recruiters van CheckMark. Nadat we even hadden gesproken over wat ik nu eigenlijk echt zocht, kreeg ineens de verrassende vraag: ‘heb je ook wel eens nagedacht over een functie buiten het lab? We hebben namelijk een vacature als recruiter en wellicht is dát juist wat je zoekt?’  En inderdaad, dat was eigenlijk precies wat ik zocht: een baan waarin contact met mensen, communiceren en snel schakelen belangrijk is, maar waarin ik ook mijn lab-achtergrond en kennis kan toepassen."
