Featured speaker and symposium chair

Etienne Duguet, Universite Bordeaux I, France

Etienne DuguetDr Etienne Duguet is Full Professor in Materials Chemistry at the University of Bordeaux, head of the research group “Chemistry of Nanomaterials” and managing director of the Laboratory of Excellence AMADEus (Advanced MAterials by DEsign).

He received his Physical-Chemistry Engineering diploma from the Graduate School of Chemistry and Physics of Bordeaux in 1989 and his Doctorate in Polymer Chemistry from the University of Bordeaux in 1992.

His research area covers hybrid organic-inorganic nanomaterials: nanoparticle synthesis, surface functionalization, polymer encapsulation and Janus/patchy particles for self-assembly. The targeted applications concern medicine (MRI contrast agents, hyperthermia mediators, nanosystems for heat-triggered drug release) and optics (pigments, nanoresonators for metamaterials in the visible range).

He has co-authored more than 130 publications and 8 patents.
