Nicola Pohl, professor of chemistry and the Joan and Marvin Carmack Chair in Bioorganic Chemistry at Indiana University in Bloomington, received her B.A. degree from Harvard College in 1991 and her Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1997. Following an NIH Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Department of Chemical Engineering doing metabolic engineering at Stanford University, she joined the faculty at Iowa State University in the fall of 2000. She was a professor of chemistry and of chemical and biological engineering and held the Wilkinson Professor of Interdisciplinary Engineering at Iowa State University before moving to Indiana University in summer 2012. She is currently also a Fellow of the Radcliffe Institute of Advanced for Advanced Study at Harvard and a Visiting Professor at MIT. She has served as on the executive committee of the Division of Biological Chemistry of the American Chemical Society, a member-at-large and Chair-Elect/Chair/Past-Chair of the ACS Carbohydrate Chemistry Division and is currently on the editorial advisory boards for the ACS journals Organic Letters and The Journal of Organic Chemistry. Her work has been recognized with a Cottrell Scholar Award (2003-2008), an NSF Career Award (2004-2009), a Sloan Foundation Fellowship (2005-2007), the Horace S. Isbell Award (2010) and Melville L. Wolfram Award (2018) from the ACS Division of Carbohydrate Chemistry, and the International Fluorous Technology Award (2017). Her research aims to understand and exploit the subtle differences amongst sugars in order to develop automated workflows to synthesize and analyze carbohydrates and incorporate them into biotherapeutics designs.
