C.V. of Lutz Nuhn
Lutz Nuhn graduated in biomedical chemistry at the Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz (Germany) in 2010. In 2008/09, he practiced first research experience at MIT with Robert Langer and Daniel G. Anderson. For his PhD, he joined the group of Rudolf Zentel in Mainz (Germany) working on multifunctional carriers for peptide and oligonucleotide delivery by reactive precursor polymers. After a research stay with Prof. Kazunori Kataoka at Tokyo University (Japan), he obtained his doctoral degree in 2014. Afterwards, he became a postdoctoral associate in the group of Bruno G. De Geest at Ghent University (Belgium) working on multifunctional nanogels for lymph node focused immune activation. Since summer 2017, he has joined the group of Tanja Weil at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Science (Mainz, Germany) as a young group leader.
Lutz Nuhn received scholarships from the German National Academic Foundation (Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes), the Max Planck Graduate Center (MPGC), the Fonds der Chemischen Industrie (FCI), the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH) and the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO). Since his return to Mainz he has become a Liebig fellow of the FCI and a project leader in the DFG Collaborative Research Center SFB-1066 “Nanodimensional Polymer Therapeutics for Tumor Therapy” (Project B4: “Polymer induced tumor-immunotherapy by in situ activation of antigen presenting cells”). More recently, he has been appointed as Emmy-Noether research group leader supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
