Designing new materials to heal the body and detect diseases earlier


Monday, 13 May 2024, 6:00 pm

Festive Hall, Austrian Academy of Sciences


Host: Giulio Superti-Furga, CeMM


Molly Stevens is John Black Professor of Bionanoscience at the University of Oxford and also holds part-time professorships at Imperial College London and the Karolinska Institute.

She graduated with a First-Class Honours BPharm degree from Bath University in 1995 and a PhD from the University of Nottingham in 2001. After postdoctoral research in the Langer Lab at MIT, she joined Imperial College London in 2004 as a lecturer and was promoted to Professor in 2008 as one of the youngest Professors ever in the history of the institution.

Molly’s multidisciplinary research balances the investigation of fundamental science with the development of technology to address some of the major healthcare challenges. She is a serial entrepreneur and the founder of several companies in the diagnostics, advanced therapeutics and regenerative medicine space. Her work has been instrumental in elucidating the biomaterial interfaces. She has created a broad portfolio of designer biomaterials for applications in disease diagnostics and regenerative medicine. Her substantial body of work influences research groups around the world (430 publications, h-index 104, 44k citations, 2018, 2021 and 2022 Clarivate Analytics Highly Cited Researcher in Cross-Field research).

Named in honor of Karl Landsteiner, the Viennese discoverer of blood groups, the CeMM Landsteiner Lecture is given annually since 2007. The speakers, carefully selected by the faculty at CeMM, are prominent scientists whose molecular research are deemed to have had a significant impact on medicine. The lecture targets both the scientific community and the general public. The lecture is held in the stunning 18th-century frescoed festive hall of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, where Haydn and Beethoven once held premieres of their work.
