Professor Carole Perry
Distinguished Lecture Series - Multidisciplinary Studies at the Biomolecule-Mineral Interface
This lecture will show how fundamental research using experimental and computational tools has increased our understanding of the interface between these two different types of materials, and how we are transitioning this knowledge towards materials particularly for the biomedical market.
- From: Wednesday 7 November 2018, 6 pm
- To: Wednesday 7 November 2018, 7.30 pm
- Location: Lecture Theatre 2, Nottingham Trent University, City Campus, Goldsmith Street, Nottingham, NG1 4BU
- Booking deadline: Tuesday 6 November 2018, 12.00 pm
Professor Carole Perry is Distinguished Professor of Bioinorganic and Materials Chemistry and a fellow of both the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Royal Microscopical Society.
Carole is an international leader in the study of (bio)silica and the study of abiotic-biotic interactions. She has held fellowships or visiting professor positions in Israel (Weizmann Institute of Science), France (Universite Pierre et Marie Curie and College de France), Germany (KIT) and the US (Harvard, MIT, University of Buffalo and Scripps Institute of Oceanography).
At NTU, Carole teaches on the undergraduate and graduate chemistry programmes. Her teaching and research interests lie where biology, chemistry and physics intersect and are directed in particular toward understanding how biomolecules and inorganic materials interact in aqueous media. An understanding of these interactions is crucial for the design of novel materials and processing technologies with applications in fields as diverse as biological imaging, implant integration, food and drug processing, and functional composite materials.
Carole is an established writer and has published circa. 200 research papers and book chapters. She has featured on radio and local TV discussing topics as diverse as: women in chemistry; increasing the life of antibiotics; sol-gel materials; spider silk; generating high value products from food waste; and most recently was a Sunday morning guest of John Holmes (BBC Radio Nottingham).
Carole is a leader in her field winning numerous awards and funding. This includes more than £6m of funding from government and industrial sponsors, including overseas funding agencies, competitive personal fellowships from the Israeli Ministry of Science and Technology and the Radcliffe Institute of Advanced Study at Harvard University and most recently a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award. She was also instrumental in securing two awards from The Higher Education Council for England and Wales - namely Chemistry: The Next Generation and Chemistry For Our Future. The legacy of these two projects continues to inspire students across the country to consider a career in the science.
