Sébastien Perrier


Sébastien Perrier

University of Warwick, UK and Monash University, Australia

Presentation title: Cyclic peptide / polymer conjugates for therapeutic applications

Professor Sébastien Perrier graduated from the Ecole National Supèrieure de Chimie de Montpellier, France, in 1998. He undertook his PhD at the University of Warwick, England, in polymer chemistry, and spent one year as a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Advances Macromolecular Design (University of New South Wales), Australia.

He started his academic career at Leeds in 2002 as a lecturer, then moved to the University of Sydney in 2007, as director of the Key Centre for Polymers & Colloids.

In October 2013, Sébastien was appointed as the Monash-Warwick Alliance Chair in Polymer Chemistry, a joint appointment between the Chemistry Department and the Medical School at the University of Warwick, UK, and the Faculty of Pharmacy at Monash University, Australia. Sébastien’s team focuses on the use of macromolecular engineering to design functional nanostructured materials, with applications ranging from material science to nanotechnology and nanomedicine.

He serves as Associate Editor of Polymer Chemistry and also a member of the editorial boards of Soft MatterMacromoleculesEuropean Polymer Journal,Polymers, ACS Macro Letters, ChemComm and ChemSocRev. His recent awards include the Macro Group UK Young Researcher Award (2006), the Rennie Memorial Medal (2009), the RACI Applied Research Award (2012), a Future Fellowship (2012), the Australian Academy of Science Le Fèvre Memorial Prize (2013), the Wolfson Merit Award (Royal Society, 2014), the Biomacromolecules / Macromolecules Young Investigator Award (ACS, 2014) and the IUPAC / Samsung Young Polymer Scientist Award (IUPAC, 2014).
