Pascal Jonkheijm, University of Twente, The Netherlands, has been awarded the KNCV Gouden Medaille (Gold Medal) by the Koninklijke Nederlandse Chemische Vereniging (KNCV, Royal Dutch Chemical Society). The award was presented during the conference CHAINS 2018 on December 4, 2018.

The KNCV Gold Medal is the most important Dutch chemistry prize and honors researchers who have distinguished themselves in the field of chemical research in the broadest sense. Jonkheijm is honored for his work at the interface of supramolecular chemistry, materials science, and cell biology.

Pascal Jonkheijm received his Ph.D. from the Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands, in 2005. He performed post-doctoral research as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology, Dortmund, Germany. In 2008, he became Assistant Professor at the University of Twente. He was promoted to Associate Professor of Supramolecular Chemistry in 2011, and in 2013, he was appointed Adjunct Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Twente, affiliated with the MIRA Institute for Biomedical Research and Technical Medicine and the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology.

Among other honors, Jonkheijm has received the 2006 Houwink Award on Macromolecular Organic Chemistry and a Biomedical Materials (BMM) Young Investigator Award in 2010. His research interests include cell-instructive biointerfaces, self-assembly, cell-surface interactions, dynamics, organic materials, and biomimetics.
