Vittorio Saggiomo was born in Naples, Italy, in 1980. After completing the high school, he started studying chemistry at the Federico II University of Naples. He obtained his MSc in March 2007 under the supervision of Prof. Daniela Montesarchio with the thesis on “design, synthesis and characterization of a new class of amphiphilic cyclic oligosaccharides”. This work was in between carbohydrate chemistry (regarding synthesis) and supramolecular chemistry (regarding host-guest and self-aggregation studies). After this he won a PhD position in the EU Marie Curie Research Training Network on Dynamic Combinatorial Chemistry and therefore in May 2007 he moved to Kiel (Germany) working under the supervision of Prof. Ulrich Lüning. His PhD project was based on the use a Dynamic Combinatorial Library (DCL) composed of imines. The key point of the project was to use directly the DCL for screening for a function, here transport of ions. The quality of the entire PhD work was recognized through the award of the summa cum laude, the highest possible distinction in Germany, and the Otto Diels award for the best PhD thesis in chemistry. In October 2010 he joined the research group of Sijbren Otto at the Stratingh Institute for Chemistry in Groningen (Netherlands) working on many dynamic-combinatorial-chemistry related projects, among which protein surface recognition, nanomaterials, lipid membranes and data mining techniques.
