Francisco Fernandez-Trillo (Paco) is a Birmingham Fellow working at the interface between Chemistry and Biology. In his group, synthetic chemistry is applied to design novel polymeric nanomaterials to address current challenges in Healthcare. At present, there is a strong emphasis in identifying innovative solutions to the increasing concern of antimicrobial resistance, as well as designing high-throughput screening strategies to identify novel biofunctional polymers. You can find more information about his research here.
Paco has co-authored over 30 peer reviewed international research publications in prominent journals, six review articles and one book chapter [orcid.org/0000-0002-6680-5683]. Paco has given over 40 talks and invited seminars nationally and internationally, and has received in excess of £980,000 from a range of sources including the John Evans Fellowship at UoB, H2020, the Royal Society, the Wellcome Trust, EPSRC and BBSRC. PFT is a peer reviewer for international journals (RSC, ACS and Elsevier) and leads the Biomolecular, Supramolecular and Nanoscale Chemistry Unit at the School of Chemistry.
