Knud J. Jensen obtained a Ph.D. degree in synthetic bioorganic chemistry with professor Morten Meldal in 1992, after which he did postdoctoral research with professor George Barany, University of Minnesota. He became assistant professor at the Technical University of Denmark in 1997 and associate professor at KVL in Copenhagen in 2001, which in 2007 became part of the University of Copenhagen. The same year he was promoted to full professor in nanobioscience. He is now a full professor at the Department of Chemistry, University of Copenhagen. He is the co-author of >160 peer-reviewed publications, as well as numerous book chapters and proceedings. In 2010, he was the co-chair of the 31st European Peptide Symposium, which was held in Copenhagen. He was awarded the very prestigious Zervas Award of the European Peptide Society in 2012. His research covers a broad range of topics at the interface between synthetic chemistry, biology, biophysics, medicinal chemistry, and nanobioscience.
