Harm-Anton Klok is Full Professor at the Institutes of Materials and Chemical Sciences and Engineering at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) (Lausanne, Switzerland). He studied chemical technology at the University of Twente (Enschede, The Netherlands) from 1989 to 1993 and received his Ph.D. in 1997 from the University of Ulm (Germany) after working with Martin Möller. After postdoctoral research with David N. Reinhoudt (University of Twente) and Samuel I. Stupp (University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, USA), he joined the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (Mainz, Germany) in early 1999 as a project leader in the group of Klaus Müllen. In November 2002, he was appointed to the faculty of EPFL. Since 2012 he is Director of the Institute of Materials (~ Department Head) and also directs the Molecular and Hybrid Materials Characterization Center at EPFL.
His research interests include polymer surface and interface science, polymer nanomedicine and polymer synthesis and functionalization.
Harm-Anton Klok is recipient of the Arthur K. Doolittle Award of the American Chemical Society (2007) and is Associate Editor of the American Chemical Society journal Biomacromolecules and serves or has served on the editorial advisory board of Eur. Polym. J., J. Polym. Sci. A: Polym. Chem., Macromolecules, ACS Macro Letters, Macromol. Rapid Commun., Macromol. Bioscience as well as ACS Applied Bio Materials.
