Dr. F.L. van Delft obtained his PhD in chemistry at the University of Leiden (1996, cum laude) under the supervision of the late Prof. J. H. van Boom. After performing post-doctoral research in the group of prof. K. C. Nicolaou (The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, USA), he became assistant professor in bioorganic chemistry at the University of Amsterdam in 1998, moving on to the Radboud University Nijmegen in 1999. In 2000, he received a NWO VIDI grant and he was appointed associate professor in 2010. He teaches a variety of courses, including chemical biology, medicinal chemistry, synthesis of biomolecules and organic chemistry.
