Talk: Latest advances in radical-ring opening copolymerization
Julien Nicolas received his PhD degree in 2005 from the University Pierre and Marie Curie (Paris, France), where he studied nitroxide-mediated polymerization and emulsion polymerization.
After a postdoctoral position at the University of Warwick (Coventry, UK) on polymer-protein bioconjugates, he obtained in 2007 a permanent CNRS researcher position at Institut Galien Paris-Saclay (Châtenay-Malabry, France) and got promoted Director of Research at CNRS in 2016 and group leader in 2019. His current research activities lie in advanced macromolecular synthesis and in the design of innovative polymer-based nanomedicines, in particular polymer nanoparticles and polymer prodrug nanocarriers for anticancer therapy. He is (co)author of more than 110 peer review articles in international journals, 7 patents and 13 book chapters. He serves as Associate Editor for Chemistry of Materials (ACS) and is part of the Editorial Advisory Board of ACS Macro Letters (ACS), Macromolecules (ACS) and Polymer Chemistry (RSC). He received the 2016 SCF/GFP award, the 2017 Polymer Chemistry Lectureship award, the 2017 Novacap Prize of the Academy of Science and the 2018 Biomacromolecules/Macromolecules Young Investigator Award.
