Persoonlijk profiel

Research profile

Alexander B. Cook is a Senior Postdoctoral Fellow at the Eindhoven University of Technology with Professor Jan van Hest. He is currently investigating lipid-polymer materials, macromolecule self-assembly, and information transfer in coacervate artificial cells. His research combines the fields of advanced synthetic polymer chemistry, with soft matter engineering methods applied to biological questions.

Academic background

Previously, he spent a period as scientist at the biotech eTheRNA Immunotherapies working on lipid nanoparticle mRNA delivery systems, and also at the Italian Institute of Technology in the group of Professor Paolo Decuzzi. He has a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Warwick where he worked with Professor Sebastien Perrier on the synthesis and application of branched polymer architectures. From 2022 he is a member of the Early Career Board of the journal ACS Biomaterials Science and Engineering. Dr. Cook has received several grants and awards, such as the CAS Future Leaders Award, Marie Curie individual and cofund fellowships, and is (co)inventor on two patent applications.

Quote

"The combination of natural building blocks with synthetic polymers has given rise to exciting opportunities to do both interesting research and create new materials with promising industrial and biomedical applications."
