The NANOMED EMJMD was delighted to welcome Prof. Dimitrios Lamprou, from Queen’s University Belfast, for a 2-week course in November 2023 at the University of Pavia!

Prof. Dimitrios Lamprou (Ph.D. MBA) is the Chair of Biofabrication and Advanced Manufacturing & Director at MSc Industrial Pharmaceutics at Queen’s University Belfast. He is also the Chair at United Kingdom and Ireland Controlled Release Society (UKICRS).

Prof. Dimitrios Lamprou is a subject matter expert in Emerging Biopharmaceutical & Pharmaceutical Technologies. He has been recognised as world leader in 3D Printing & Microfluidics, with PubMed-based algorithms placed him in the top 0.1% of scholars in the world writing about 3D Printing and in the top 0.07% of scholars in the world writing about microfluidics over the past 10 years. Moreover, PubMed-based algorithms placed him in the top 0.6% of scholars in the world writing about nanofibers. He has also been named in the Stanford University’s list of World’s Top 2% Scientists, for several consecutive years, for his research in Pharmaceutics and Biomedical Engineering.

His research focuses on three major areas using Emerging Technologies (e.g., 3D Printing, 4D Printing, Bioprinting, Electrospinning, Microfluidics, Lab-on-a-chip, and BioMEMS): nanoparticles for imaging & therapeutic applicationslab-on-a-chip & microfluidic devices, and implants for therapeutic delivery & tissue engineering.
