Dr Eugen Stulz is Associate Professor in Bio-organic and Materials Chemistry within Chemistry at the University of Southampton.
Eugen Stulz graduated from the University of Bern (Switzerland) in 1994, where he subsequently studied for a Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Christian J. Leumann. His thesis was concerned with the evaluation of artificial nucleases based on zirconium(iv) complexes. In 1999, he moved to Cambridge (UK) as a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) Postdoctoral fellow to the group of Prof. Jeremy K. M. Sanders, working in the field of supramolecular chemistry and dynamic combinatorial libraries using phosphine-substituted porphyrins. During this time, he also held a part-time teaching position at Anglia Polytechnic University, and an Advanced Research position. In 2003, he moved to the University of Basel (Switzerland) as a Lecturer (Habilitand) with a Fellowship of the Treubel Foundation Basel and started his independent research in the field of supramolecular chemistry using DNA as scaffold for novel functional molecules. In 2006, he was appointed Lecturer in Chemistry at the University of Southampton, promoted Senior Lecturer in 2010 and Associate Professor in 2014.
In addition to >60 research papers, Eugen Stulz has been author of several invited review articles, of an invited book chapter contribution, and has been invited editor of a special theme issue on DNA nanotechnology in CSR in 2011. In 2003 he was also awarded the SYNTHESIS/SYNLETT Journal Award by Thieme, Germany. Currently he is editing a book for Wiley “DNA in Supramolecular Chemistry and Nanotechnology” (to be published 2015).
The high quality of our research is regularly acknowledged by prizes for our group members. In particular the highly prestigious Roscoe Medal at the "Set for Britain" event 2010 for best chemistry poster presentation (Parliamentary and Scientific Committee, UK Parliament), as well as an EPSRC sponsored NanoKTN prize and several UG and PG prizes have been awarded to the group. We have been highlighted by professional bodies such as the EPSRC Mass Spectrometry Centre Swansea, Diamond Light Source (annual reports), by the RSC in Chemistry World and in the Southampton “New Boundaries” research magazine.
Eugen Stulz is member of the USRG NanoScience, the Institute for Life Sciences, invited member of the Steering Committee Diamond Light Source B23 (CD spectroscopy), and invited member of the Diamond Peer Review Panel 2 (Soft Condensed Matter).
