Biography

Professor Philip Page is a graduate of the Imperial College, University of London (1978), from where he also obtained his PhD in 1981 in the area of organic synthesis, working with Prof Steve Ley FRS. He then spent two years working for Professor Leo Paquette at Ohio State University as an SERC/NATO Research Fellow before moving to the University of Liverpool as a lecturer in 1983, and subsequently to Loughborough University as Professor of Organic Chemistry in 1996. He has published over 240 articles, and has won a Nuffield Foundation Science Research Fellowship, the Royal Society of Chemistry Hickinbottom Fellowship, the Glaxo Wellcome Award for Innovative Chemistry, the Royal Society of Chemistry Tilden Medal & Lectureship, and a Royal Society Industry Fellowship. In 2007, he moved to the Chair of Organic Chemistry at UEA. His research interests lie principally in the areas of asymmetric synthesis/catalysis, synthetic methodology and natural product synthesis. Professor Page, a Kentish Man, is married and currently lives in Norfolk with one wife and two cats. His hobbies include chemistry, reading, hifi and music, not necessarily all at once, and food and drink.
