A/Prof. Cyrille Boyer received his Ph-D in polymer chemistry from the University of Montpellier II (awarded in 2006). His Ph-D was in collaboration with Solvay-Solexis and devoted at the synthesis of new graft copolymers using grafting “to”. At the end of his PhD, he undertook an engineer position with Dupont Performance and Elastomers, dealing with the synthesis of original fluorinated elastomers. Later, he joined the Centre for Advanced Macromolecular Design (CAMD) as a senior research fellow. He was working on the synthesis of protein/siRNA-polymer conjugates using RAFT technology. In 2010, he has been appointed as a lecturer in the School of Chemical Engineering and he received an Australian Research Council Fellow (APD-ARC). In 2011, he joined the Australian Centre for NanoMedicine as a project leader to develop new polymeric nanoparticles for drug delivery and gene therapy. The same year, Cyrille started a new research program on the preparation of new hybrid nanoparticles/polymers for hydrogen storage in collaboration with Francois Aguey-Zinsou. In 2012, Cyrille has been promoted Senior Lecturer at the School of Chemical Engineering and he has been awarded an ARC-Future Fellowship. In 2012, he also received the Scopus Young Researcher of the Year Award 2012 in the Engineering and Technology. In 2013, Cyrille has been promoted as Associate Professor at the University of New South Wales. Cyrille’s research interests mainly cover the preparation of well-defined polymeric nanoparticles for delivery of therapeutic molecules (including chemotherapy drugs, siRNA and nitric oxide), hybrid organic-inorganic nanoparticles for imaging and energy storage and macromolecular design.
