Nanomedicine Lab is organizing 'Nanotechnologies in Life Sciences' Lecture Series aiming to invite eminent speakers to give lectures in the University.
Our first speaker, Professor Luis Liz-Marzán, is Ikerbasque Professor and the Scientific Director of CIC biomaGUNE in San Sebastian (Spain). He graduated in chemistry from the University of Santiago de Compostela, was a postdoc at Utrecht University and Professor at the University of Vigo (1995–2012). He has also been Invited Visiting Professor at various institutions worldwide.
Liz-Marzán received numerous research awards, including the Medal of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry, National Chemistry Award and 2 ERC Advanced Grants. He is also member of the Royal Spanish Academy of Sciences and of Academia Europaea. He is co-author of over 470 publications and 8 patents, supervisor of over 30 PhD theses, and has delivered over 450 invited lectures. He is currently associate editor of ACS Nano and serves in the editorial boards of various other journals, including Science.
His major research activity is devoted to understanding the growth mechanisms of metal nanocrystals, tailoring their surface chemistry, and directing their self-assembly, toward improved plasmonic properties for biomedical applications, including biosensing and bioimaging by surface-enhanced Raman scattering.
