Talk Title: Designer Gelators for the Crystallization of a Salt Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient

Jonathan W. Steed was born in London, UK in 1969. He obtained his B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees at University College London, working with Derek Tocher on coordination and organometallic chemistry directed towards inorganic drugs and new metal-mediated synthesis methodologies. He graduated in 1993, winning the Ramsay Medal for his Ph.D. work. Between 1993 and 1995 he was a NATO postdoctoral fellow at the University of Alabama and University of Missouri, working with Jerry Atwood. In 1995 he was appointed as a Lecturer at King’s College London and in 1998 he was awarded the Royal Society of Chemistry Meldola Medal. In 2004 he joined Durham University where he is currently Professor of Inorganic Chemistry. As well as Supramolecular Chemistry (2000) Professor Steed is co-author of Core Concepts in Supramolecular Chemistry and Nanochemistry (2007) and more than 350 research papers. He has published a large number of reviews, book chapters and popular articles as well as two major edited works, the Encyclopaedia of Supramolecular Chemistry (2004) and the 8-volume Supramolecular Chemistry: from Molecular to Nanomaterials (2012). He was Associate Editor for New Journal of Chemistry (2001–2009) and Chemical Communications (2010–2019) and is now Editor-in-Chief of the American Chemical Society journal Crystal Growth & Design. He is the recipient of the Vice Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Postgraduate Teaching (2006), The Royal Society of Chemistry Corday Morgan Prize (2010) and is a Wolfson Research Merit Award Holder (2018). His research interests are in crystallization and supramolecular materials chemistry.

Chris Rielly graduated with a BSc (Eng) degree in Chemical Engineering from Imperial College, University of London in 1980. He continued at Imperial College for a PhD in Chemical Engineering, working in the area of two-phase flow. In 1983 he moved to Cambridge University Engineering Department to take up a post-doctoral research position within their Fluid Mechanics Group.

In 1986 he became a lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Cambridge. In 1988/89 he obtained a year's leave to work for a chemical contracting company and in 1998 he took sabbatical leave at the University of Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia. In August 1999, Chris came to Loughborough University to take up a new chair in Chemical Engineering. He was Head of Department in Chemical Engineering at Loughborough between 2008 and 2014 and became Acting Dean of the School of Aeronautical, Automotive, Chemical and Materials Engineering in 2016.
