Professor Jennifer Hiscock, Professor of Supramolecular Chemistry at the University of Kent and UKRI Future Leaders Fellow, and current Chair of WISC.
Jen has been awarded the Bob Hay Lectureship, by the Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry (MASC) Group. This prestigious lectureship is given annually by a younger chemist working in the area of macrocyclic and/or supramolecular chemistry. This is the first time a non-Russell group scientist has won this award since it commenced in 2001. Highlighting Professor Hiscock’s incredible expertise in this area of supramolecular chemistry. Jen will be giving this lecture on the 19th December.
Jen has been prolific in the creation of Women in Supramolecular Chemistry, an international network put together to create a kinship and to provide support for women in Chemistry. The aim of the group is to support the retention and career progression of women of all career stages within the community. Jen has been the network chair since its creation in September 2019. Next year she wilk be passing on the baton.
Have you heard of The Research Network app, available on the App Store and Google Play? This app helps you collaborate with other researchers, conference attendees, funding and projects. The basis started in 2011 after a life science consultancy using the TRN network to build project teams. Jen is the Academic collaboration coordinator of this app.
Jen hails from a long line of amazing Chemists via her academic tree. Including Jean-Marie Lehn, Nobel Prize winner for Chemistry in 1987 for his synthesis of cryptands and John Isaiah Brauman winner of the National Medal of Science in 2002.
