Sebastien Lecommandoux, University of Bordeaux, France
Sebastien Lecommandoux is currently Director of the “Laboratoire de Chimie des Polymères Organiques” (LCPO) and 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 is especially recognized for the design of original polymeric nanoparticles, “bioactive by design” and stimuli responsive, able to load and release “on demand” molecular and biomacromolecular drugs (anti-cancer, peptide,…). He published more than 160 publications in international journal, 6 book chapters and 3 patents. He is Associate Editor for Biomacromolecules (ACS) and in the Editorial Advisory Board of several international journals, including Bioconjugate Chemistry (ACS), Polymer Chemistry and Biomaterials Science (RSC).
Research Interests: Therapeutic Nanotechnologies, Drug-Delivery, Biomaterials; Bioactive polymers; Self-Assembly and SupraMacromolecular chemistry; Polypeptide and polysaccharide synthesis and self-assembly; Biomimicry for (bio)materials design
