Anna Cristina S. Samia
Anna Cristina S. Samia is an Assistant Professor of chemistry at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH. Prior to her faculty appointment, Professor Samia obtained her B.S. degree in chemistry from the University of the Philippines-Diliman Campus. She later studied at Georgia Institute of Technology to obtain her Ph.D. degree in analytical/inorganic chemistry under the mentorship of Professor Z. John Zhang, where she worked on tuning the magnetic properties of spinel ferrite nanoparticles for biomedical applications. The following years she worked as a Post doctoral Scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, and then continued her Post-doctoral training in nanomedicine at the School of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University, where she was involved in development of nanoparticle-enabled drug delivery systems for gene and cancer therapies. Her current research interests are in the area of synthesis and biomedical applications of magnetic and plasmonic nanostructures. Her research focuses on the development of novel hybrid nanostructures for applications in cancer therapy and diagnostics.
