Prof Cyrille Boyer received his Ph.D. from the University of Montpellier II. After working with Dupont Performance Elastomers, Cyrille moved to UNSW in the centre for advanced macromolecular design. He was awarded the SCOPUS Young Researcher of the year Award in 2012, one of the six 2015 Prime Minister's Science Prizes (Malcolm McIntosh Prize for Physical Scientist of the year) and the 2016 LeFevre Memorial Prize. Cyrille’s research has also been recognized by several international awards, including 2016 ACS Biomacromolecules/Macromolecules Award, 2016 Journal of Polymer Science Innovation Award. Cyrille is the co-director of Australian Centre for Nanomedicine and member of Centre for Advanced Macromolecular Design. The Australian Centre for Nanomedicine regroups 10 academics, 20 post-docs and research associates and 80 PhD students. Cyrille's research interests mainly cover the use of photoredox catalysts to perform living radical polymerization and polymer post-modification and anti-microbial polymers

Elsevier and the Editors of the EPJ warmly congratulate Cyrille on these achievements! And we look forward to welcoming him to Budapest to give a Featured talk at Frontiers in Polymer Science 5-8 May 2019. For more information on this event, please visit
