Nottingham Trent University
Dmitry Volodkin is Associate Professor at Nottingham Trent University and heads the group “Active-Bio-Coatings”. He has studied Chemistry at the Lomonosov Moscow State University in Russia. Research stays brought him to France (University of Strasbourg) and Germany (Max-Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Technical University of Berlin, Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology). His research activities are focused on design of advanced stimuli-responsive biomaterials for applications in tissue engineering, diagnostics, toxicology, drug delivery. His group engineer self-assembled polymer-based 2D and 3D structures with tailor-made properties: multilayer films, microcapsules and beads, liposome-polymer composites, polymeric scaffolds, etc. Dmitry Volodkin has published more than 70 peer-reviewed articles/books and received a number of prestigious scientific awards such as Sofja Kovalevskaja Award of Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Richard-Zsigmondy Price of German Colloid Society, Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship.
