Etter Memorial Lecture: Professor Younan Xia
Margaret C. Etter Memorial Lecture in Materials Chemistry
Professor Xia's research centers on the design and synthesis of novel nanomaterials for a broad range of applications, including nanomedicine, regenerative medicine, cancer theranostics, tissue engineering, controlled release, catalysis, and fuel cell technology.
Younan Xia is the Brock Family Chair and Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar in Nanomedicine in The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology, with joint appointments in School of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. Professor Xia was born in Jingjiang, Jiangsu, China. He received his doctorate in physical chemistry from Harvard University with Professor George M. Whitesides in 1996, his master's degree in inorganic chemistry from University of Pennsylvania with the late Professor Alan G. MacDiarmid in 1993, and his bachelor's degree in chemical physics from the University of Science and Technology of China in 1987. He came to the United States in 1991.
