Dr Eugen Stulz is Associate Professor in Bio-organic and Materials Chemistry with a focus on DNA chemistry and nanomaterials for biological/medicinal and energy applications.
"Always expect the unexpected"
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), first as a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) Postdoctoral fellow, then as an Advanced Research Fellow (SNF), to the group of Prof. Jeremy K. M. Sanders. There he was 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. In 2003, he moved to the University of Basel (Switzerland) as a Lecturer (Habilitand) with a Treubel Foundation Fellowship and started his independent research in the field of supramolecular chemistry using DNA as scaffold for multiporphyrin arrays. In 2006, he was appointed Lecturer in Chemistry at the University of Southampton, promoted Senior Lecturer in 2010 and Associate Professor in 2014.
His key interests are in the field of DNA technology in its widest sense, spanning from supramolecular chemistry over DNA nanotechnology to medicinal applications in cancer therapy. In addition, he is involved in key research developing silver nanoparticles for energy applications.
