Keynote Mark Welland on nanoscience and human disease

Mar 18, 2016

Nanocity is pleased to announce the confirmation of keynote speaker Prof. Sir Mark Welland. He is Professor of nanotechnology in Electrical Engineering at the University of Cambridge. Prof. Welland will address nanoscience and human disease in his NanoCity keynote speech.

Professor Welland's research interest lie in nanoscience and nanotechnology in a broad range of both fundamental and applied problems. These include protein mis-folding problems related to human diseases such as Alzheimer's, nanostructured materials for high efficiency low-cost solar cells, biologically inspired nanomaterials for green technologies and nanoelectronics for future generation communications and sensing. Professor Welland is Director of the Department's Nanoscience Centre of the University of Cambridge

Professor Welland established a purpose built facility at the University of Cambridge, the Nanoscience Centre, which undertakes a variety of nano-related research programmes of an interdisciplinary nature. This was the base for the Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration (IRC) in Nanotechnology of which Professor Welland was the Director and whose highly successful legacy has been far reaching. He has substantive international connections in the USA, Japan, Europe, India and the Middle East. He established the Science and Technology Research Centre at the American University in Cairo, Egypt which he co-directed from 2003 to 2010 and from 2008 to 2012 was for the UK, the international principal investigator of the £100M World Premier Research Institute in nanomaterials based in Tsukuba, Japan.
