Prof. Dr. Jason P. Holland

Jason Holland is from Yorkshire in the United Kingdom and received his Master’s degree (MChem) in Chemistry from the University of York in 2004. He then moved to the University of Oxford and completed his doctorate (D.Phil) in 2008 in the areas of inorganic synthesis, radiochemistry and computational chemistry under the joint mentorship of Prof. Jonathan R. Dilworth and Prof. Jennifer C. Green. After his doctorate, Jason moved to the USA and worked for two years (2008 – 2010) as a post-doctoral scholar in radiochemistry and translational molecular imaging under the mentorship of Prof. Jason S. Lewis at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Following this post-doctoral experience, he was awarded an ETH Fellowship and spent two years (2010 – 2012) working at the ETH Zurich and the Paul Scherrer Institute. He then returned to the USA and was appointed as junior faculty working as an Assistant in Chemistry in the Division of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston (2012 – 2014). At the same time, he also held a joint faculty appointment as an Instructor in Radiology at Harvard Medical School. In 2015, he worked in the Department of Nuclear Medicine at the University Hospital Freiburg as a Visiting Scientist. In April 2016, Jason began his research group as an Assistant Professor in the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Zurich, funded by the European Research Council and a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) Professorship.
