Paul Hanson
Professor, University of Kansas

Paul R. Hanson obtained his B.A. in chemistry from Luther College in 1985 while carrying out undergraduate research for three years under the late Adrian Docken. He went on to receive his Ph.D. in chemistry at the University of Minnesota in 1993, under the mentorship of Professor Thomas R. Hoye, where he worked on the total synthesis and structural elucidation of members and analogs of the Annonaceous Acetogenin family of natural products. As an NIH postdoctoral fellow at Stanford (1993-1996), he worked on Pd-catalyzed cycloisomerization methods en route to vitamin D3 and analogs under the direction of Professor Barry M. Trost. His independent career as an Assistant Professor started in 1996 at the University of Kansas in the Department of Chemistry with a courtesy appointment in Medicinal Chemistry. He received the NSF Career Award in 1999 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2001 and became a full professor in 2006. He is currently a project leader in the Center for Chemical Methodologies and Library Development (KU-CMLD, Jeffrey Aubé PI) at the University of Kansas and is a Principal Investigator on an NIH-funded training grant in Chemical Biology (2007-present). He is also serving as a standing member of the NIH Synthetic and Biological Chemistry B Study Section. The long-term goals of his program center on the development of novel synthetic methods in the areas of heterocyclic chemistry, the biological and synthetic utility of phosphorus- and sulfur-containing heterocycles, natural product chemistry, immobilized reagents, flow-through and high throughput chemistry for library synthesis.

Timothy Jamison
Professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Tim Jamison was born in San Jose, CA and grew up in neighboring Los Gatos, CA. He received his undergraduate education at the University of California, Berkeley. A six-month research assistantship at ICI Americas in Richmond, CA under the mentorship of Dr. William G. Haag was his first experience in chemistry research. Upon returning to Berkeley, he joined the laboratory of Prof. Henry Rapoport and conducted undergraduate research in his group for nearly three years, the majority of which was under the tutelage of William D. Lubell (now at the University of Montreal). A Fulbright Scholarship supported ten months of research in Prof. Steven A. Benner’s laboratories at the ETH in Zürich, Switzerland, and thereafter he undertook his PhD studies at Harvard University with Prof. Stuart L. Schreiber. He then moved to the laboratory of Prof. Eric N. Jacobsen at Harvard University, where he was a Damon Runyon-Walter Winchell postdoctoral fellow. In July 1999, he began his independent career at MIT, where his research program focuses on the development of new methods of organic synthesis and their implementation in the total synthesis of natural products.

Klavs Jensen
Professor, Massachusetts Institute Of Technology

Klavs F. Jensen is Warren K. Lewis Professor and Head of the Chemical Department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research interests revolve around novel techniques for continuous organic synthesis, flow chemistry. Catalysis, chemical kinetics and transport phenomena related to flow chemistry are also topics of interest along with development of simulation approaches for reactive chemical systems, specifically simulation across multiple length and time scales. He is the recipient of several awards and he is a member of the US National Academy of Engineering and the American Academy of Arts and Science.

Tyler McQuade
Associate Professor, Florida State University

Dr. Tyler McQuade recently joined the Organic Division of the FSU Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry as Associate Professor. An Assistant Professor at Cornell University from 2001-2007, Professor McQuade graduated from the University of California - Irvine with a B.S. in Chemistry and a B.S. in Biology in 1992, and from the University of Wisconsin – Madison with a PhD in Chemistry in 1998. He received a number of awards, including the prestigious ACS graduate fellowship, as a graduate student working under the guidance of Professor Samuel Gellman. In addition, one of the surfactants for solubilizing membrane proteins described in his Ph.D. thesis has recently become commercially available. His post-doctorate research with Professor Timothy Swager at MIT was supported by an NIH Fellowship.Dr. McQuade’s current research combines the organic, bioorganic and materials chemistry of his undergraduate, graduate and post-doc work to focus on creating multi-catalyst systems that will improve the quality and efficiency of chemical synthesis. His group’s long-term goal is to advance medical and biological research by creating multi-catalyst systems that provide access to new intermediates, yield more selective reactions, and allow the construction of many bonds in one vessel.With a deep interest in sustainable chemistry (a more environmentally benign approach to science), Dr. McQuade and his group are working to make chemical synthesis - especially pharmaceutical production - less wasteful and expensive than it is now. His group’s multidisciplinary environment is yielding both polymers and small molecules that will provide the building blocks for next generation methodology and new tools for sustainable process chemistry. McQuade was a Dreyfus, 3M, Rohm and Haas, Beckman, and NYSTAR Young Investigator and was one of MIT Tech Review’s Top 100 Young Innovators in 2004.
