Virgil Percec, P. Roy Vagelos Professor of Chemistry, was elected to the Academia Europaea. Percec was named a Foreign Member of the Academy in Chemistry.

Percec’s research group is involved in the elaboration of synthetic methods, strategies, and architectural concepts, as well as in the understanding of the fundamental principles that govern the rational design and synthesis of complex molecular, macromolecular, and supramolecular nonbiological systems that exhibit biological functions. His research touches a diversity of interrelated disciplines and seeks to understand, mimic, and extend Nature's solutions to the design of synthetic functional nanosystems.

The Academia Europaea was established in 1988 and is the Pan-European Academy of Sciences Humanities and Letters.
