Frchet Named Vice President for Research at Kaust
Date:3/9/2010

o has managed to conduct groundbreaking research while also inspiring and challenging students, making him one of the most popular and effective members of our faculty,” said Dr. Graham Fleming, Vice Chancellor for Research and Professor of Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley. “Jean truly understands the nature of innovation in science and technology and KAUST is sure to benefit from his multifaceted experiences during this formative phase in its development.”

From his early work in solid-phase synthesis at University of Ottawa to his most recent studies in polymers for therapeutics at Berkeley, Frchet‘s work in the field of functional polymers has been noteworthy for its innovative nature and great breadth, spanning fundamental studies, the search for properties, and the exploration of applications.

“Frchet is an outstanding scientist who will bring a broad knowledge of science and technology to KAUST,” said Dr. Robert Grubbs of Caltech, the 2005 Nobel laureate in chemistry. “In his own research he has established the leading laboratory in the design and application of new materials, especially dendrimers and other highly structured molecules. In addition to his contributions to fundamental chemistry, he played a major role in the development of the photolithography strategy that is used to make high resolution computer chips, new separation technologies and new methods for the conversion of light into electrical energy. With this array of talents and experiences, I can think of no one better to set the direction of science and technology at KAUST.”

Professor Jean-Marie Pierre Lehn, a Nobel-prize winning chemist at University of Strasbourg in France, praised the appointment. “Jean Frchet has made a number of major contributions to our understanding of chemistry and chemical engineering,” He added, “Frechet is one of the most highly cited scientists in the
