报告人简介：Virgil Percec was born and educated in Romania (BS in Organic and Macromolecular Chemistry at the Polytechnic University in lasi in1969 and PhD in 1976 with C. L. Simionescu at the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry in Iasi). In 1981 he defected his native country andafter short postdoctoral stays at the University of Freiburg in Germany (July 1981 with H.-J. Cantow) and University of Akron, US (August1981 to March 1982 with J. P. Kennedy) he joined the Department of Macromolecular Science of Case Western Reserve University in Cleve-land, US in March 1982 as an Assistant Professor. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 1984 and to Professor in 1986. In 1993 he wasawarded the Leonard Casc Jr. Chair at Case Western Reserve University and in 1999 he was invited and moved to the University of Pennsyl-vania in Philadelphia as P. Roy Vagelos Chair and Professor of Chemistry. He has been repeatedly a Visiting Professor at the Universities ofFreiburg, Ulm and at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz (all in Germany) and at the Royal Institute of Technology inStockholm. His list of awards includes Honorary Foreign Member of the Romanian Academy (1993), Humboldt Award for Senior US Scientists(1997), NSF Research Award for Creativity in Research (1990, 1995, 2000), Fellow of IUPAC (2001), PTN Polymer Award from the Nether-lands (2002), Fellow of PMSE Division of ACS (2003), Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (2004), the ACSAward in Polymer Chemistry (2004), the Staudinger Medal from ETH (2005), Doctor Honoris Causa from Polytechnic University, lasi (2007)and University of Athens, Greece (2007), the International Award of the Society ofPolymer Science, Japan (2007), the H.F. Mark Medal fromthe Austrian Institute for Science and Technology, Vienna (2008), Honorary Member of the Israel Chemical Society (2009), Humboldt Awardfor Senior US Scientists (2011), the ACS Inaugural Kavli Foundation Innovation in Chemistry Lecture (201 l), Honorary Professor of the Aus-tralian Institute of Bioengineering & Nanoscience, Foreign Member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (2013), Honor-ary member and Petru Poni" Medal of the Romanian Chemical Society (2014), Cristofor Simionescu ACS Award for excellence in Macro-molecular Chemistry in Collaboration with the Romanian International Chapter (2015). NSF Research Award for Creativity in Research(2016). Doctor Honoris Causa Polytechnic University Bucharest, (2016). He served as Editor of the Journal of Polymer Science Part A Polymer Chemistry (1996-2013) and of the book series Liquid Crystals(2007-2013). Currently he is on the Editorial and Advisory Boards of 22 International Journals, on the Scientific Advisory Boards of SymyxCompany, Henkel Company, Molecular Foundry and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory both at the University of California at Berkeleyand of the Australian Institute for Bioengineering & Nanoscience. He is a consultant to numerous US and International Companies and Gov-ernmental Offices. His research interest is at the interface between organic, supramolecular, macromolecular chemistries, liquid crystals, nano-science and biology where he contributed over 750 refereed publications, 80 patents, edited 19 books and presented over 1200 endowed, invit-ed and plenary lectures. His h-index is 110 in Google and 99 in Web of Science.
