Rabah Boukherroub, Ph.D.
Associate Editor, ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces
CNRS Research Director and Group Leader, Institute of Electronics, Microelectronics and Nanotechnology (IEMN), University of Lille, France
Dr. Rabah Boukherroub received a PhD in chemistry from the University Paul Sabatier in Toulouse, France. He is currently a CNRS research director and a group leader at the Institute of Electronics, Microelectronics and Nanotechnology (IEMN), University of Lille, France. He is Associate Editor for ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. He is also a guest Professor, China University of Petroleum, Qingdao, China. His research interests are in the area of nanostructured functional materials, surface chemistry, and photophysics of semiconductor/metal nanostructures with emphasis on biosensors, nanomedicine, photocatalysis and energy-related applications. He is a co-author of 470+ research publications and wrote 31 book chapters in subjects related to nanotechnology, materials chemistry, and biosensors. He has 11 patents or patents pending.
Dinesh Soares, Ph.D.
Managing Editor, ACS Omega
Editorial Outreach, American Chemical Society International
Dr. Dinesh Soares is part of the American Chemical Society International (ACSI) team based in Oxford, UK and his primary responsibility is serving as Managing Editor (Europe) for the multidisciplinary, Open Access journal, ACS Omega. As ACS’s first Editorial Development representative based in Europe, Dinesh is also engaged in editorial outreach for the full ACS Publications portfolio. Dr. Soares joined ACS after working at the University of Edinburgh for 10 years, where he was a Research Fellow at the MRC Institute of Genetics & Molecular Medicine and the MRC Centre for Inflammation Research. Dinesh has a Bachelor’s degree with dual majors in Biochemistry and Zoology from St. Xavier’s College (Bombay, India), a Master’s degree in Bioinformatics from the University of York (UK), and a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Edinburgh (UK). He has co-authored over 50 publications, having worked in many different areas of the biological and chemical sciences during his research career, from the genetics of disease through to translational medicine.
Caroline Mellot-Draznieks, Ph.D.
Topic Editor, Crystal Growth & Design
Research Director, Collège de France in the Laboratoire de Chimie des Processus Biologiques
Caroline Mellot-Draznieks is a chemist graduated at Ecole Normale Supérieure and Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris and obtained her PhD at Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris) in 1993 working on zeolites and gas separation. She spent two years in R&D at L’Air Liquide in France, then conducted postdoctoral work at University of California, Santa Barbara with Prof. A. K. Cheetham. She became a CNRS Researcher in 1998 at the Institut Lavoisier in Versailles where she started working on metal-organic frameworks and the prediction of crystal structures of using computational chemistry. She is now Research Director at the Collège de France in the Laboratoire de Chimie des Processus Biologiques. Her current research interests include the characterization and simulation of nanoporous crystalline hybrid materials (MOFs), in the context of environmental issues involving CO2 capture and photocatalysis.
Sébastien Lecommandoux, Ph.D.
Associate Editor, Biomacromolecules
Full Professor and Director, Laboratoire de Chimie des Polymères Organiques
After a postdoctoral experience in Sam Stupps’s group at Urbana-Champaign (USA) in 1998, Sébastien Lecommandoux joined the Univ. Bordeaux (France) as Assistant Professor and is currently Full Professor and Director of the “Laboratoire de Chimie des Polymères Organiques”, leading the group “Polymer Self-Assembly and Life Sciences”. His research interests include polypeptide and polysaccharide based block copolymers self-assembly, biomimetic approaches toward design of synthetic viruses and cells as well as the design of polymersomes for drug-delivery and theranostic. He published more than 170 publications in international journal, 6 book chapters and 4 patents, with about 10000 citations. He received the CNRS Bronze medal in 2004, Institut Universitaire de France (IUF) Junior Award in 2007 and became Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) in 2017. He is in the Editorial Advisory Board of several international journals, including Bioconjugate Chemistry (ACS), Polymer Chemistry and Biomaterials Science (RSC) and Associate Editor for Biomacromolecules (ACS) since 2013.
Julien Nicolas, Ph.D.
Associate Editor, Chemistry of Materials
Research Director, CNRS
Julien Nicolas completed his PhD in 2005 under the supervision of Prof. Bernadette Charleux at the University Pierre and Marie Curie in Paris (France), where he studied nitroxide-mediated polymerization. He then joined the group of Prof. David M. Haddleton at the University of Warwick (UK), as a postdoctoral researcher in the field of polymer-protein bioconjugates. In 2007, he obtained a CNRS researcher position at Institut Galien Paris-Sud (Univ. Paris-Sud) in Châtenay-Malabry (France) and got promoted CNRS research Director in 2016. His current research activities lie in advanced macromolecular synthesis and in the design of innovative polymer-based nanomedicines. He is (co)author of 90 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 Polymer Chemistry (RSC).
