Position: Research director at the French National Centre for Scientific Research, a group leader at the Institute of Electronics, Microelectronics, and Nanotechnology (IEMN), CNRS & University of Lille, France
Specialization: Nanostructured functional materials with an emphasis on biosensors, nanomedicine, photocatalysis, and energy-related applications
At the NANOCON´23 conference Dr. R. Boukherroub will present a plenary lecture: “Nanotechnological advances in diabetes management”.
Personal Background and Education:
Dr. Rabah Boukherroub received a Ph.D. in 1993 in organic and organometallic chemistry (highest distinction) from the University of Paul Sabatier in Toulouse, France, Master's in organic chemistry (with honours) from the same university (1989). In 2002, he received his habilitation in the chemistry of materials from the University of Versailles, 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 (since 06/2015). He is the co-founder of the biotechnology company BioNaMeris.
Research interests of R. Boukherroub are in the area of nanostructured functional materials, surface chemistry, and photophysics of semiconductor/metal nanostructures with an emphasis on biosensors, nanomedicine, photocatalysis, and energy-related applications. His main contributions are in the area of surface functionalization of various materials to design selective and sensitive sensors of biological molecules in complex media, design of targeted and controlled-release drug delivery systems.
