Cyrille Boyer

University of New South Wales, Australia


Cyrille Boyer received his Ph.D. degree in polymer chemistry from the University of Montpellier II, France, in 2006. His Ph.D. degree was in collaboration with Solvay-Solexis and devoted at the synthesis of new graft copolymers using grafting onto. At the end of his Ph.D. degree, 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 under the direction of Professor Tom Davis. Boyer was working on the synthesis of protein-polymer conjugates using RAFT technology. In 2010, he has been appointed as a Lecturer in the School of Chemical Engineering and 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, he started a new research program on the preparation of new hybrid nanoparticles/polymers for hydrogen storage in collaboration with Francois Aguey-Zinsou (School of Chemical Engineering). In 2012, he has been promoted to Senior Lecturer and he received a prestige Future Fellowship from Australian Research Council. His research interests mainly cover the preparation of well-defined polymeric nanoparticles for drug delivery and siRNA delivery, protein polymer conjugates, hybrid organic-inorganic nanoparticles for imaging and energy storage, and macromolecular design. He has coauthored over 90 peer-reviewed research papers, including book chapters and international patents. He has received several awards, including 2012 Scopus Young Researcher Award in Engineering and Science for Australia, Best poster ACS...
