University of Valencia
ACS on Campus, the American Chemical Society’s flagship outreach program, is coming to the University of Valencia on February 13! Our sessions will introduce you to publishing and informatics processes, and contribute to your professional development. You’ll benefit from exposure to ACS editors and networking opportunities with local professionals and your peers.
You’ll hear from Dr. Chris Holland, Associate Editor of ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering, and Prof. Juan Bisqurt, the Sen
This event is open to all students and researchers studying the sciences – not just chemistry! Registration is highly recommended.
Chris Holland, Ph.D.
Associate Editor, ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering
EPSRC Early Career Fellowship, The University of Sheffield in the Materials Science and Engineering Department
Chris is based in The University of Sheffield in the Materials Science and Engineering Department where he leads the Natural Materials Group (www.naturalmaterialsgroup.com). He currently holds an EPSRC Early Career Fellowship and was previously at Oxford Zoology where he undertook his degrees and JRF. Outside the lab he is an Associate Editor for ACS Biomaterials Science and Engineering and Chair of the IoM3 Natural Materials Association. His research uses tools developed for the physical sciences to better understand how processing effects performance in natural materials. Using silk as a model system and studying it is spun he has been able to gain unique insights into this material’s biodiversity, structure and evolution. Additionally, this work has made important links between natural and industrial fibre processing which has led to several patents and a fundamentally new way of designing, testing and fabricating bio-inspired materials which is now being realised as Co-ordinator of the H2020 FET Open project FLIPT (www.h2020flipt.eu).
