UCL Department of Chemical Engineering


Spring into STEM | Using Chemical Engineering to Help Children with Cancer | Virtual Lecture Series

25 May 2022, 10:00 am–11:00 am

Spring into Stem

Spring Into STEM | Using Chemical Engineering to Help Children with Cancer will be given by UCL Chemical Engineering Associate Professor Stefan Guldin and is one of five lectures presented by UCL Chemical Engineering, as part of the Spring into STEM webinars from UCL Engineering.

This event is free.

Event Information

Open to







Mark Bernardes and Lizzie Howie


United Kingdom

The AdReNa (Adaptive and Responsive Nanomaterials) research group is interested in the fundamental question of how materials form and interact on the nanoscale with the aim to create colloids and interfaces that can selectively interact with chemical and biological targets. In this talk, Stefan Guldin will show how this research is relevant for applications in healthcare and the environment, in particular how our work at UCL informs clinical prototypes for therapeutic drug monitoring in paediatric cancer.

Our taster lectures will give you a chance to find out about the subjects we teach and research, you'll be able to meet our lecturers and researchers and you can put your questions to the team. We look forward to welcoming you.

UCL uses a third party (Zoom) to administer our webinar/virtual open days and manage your personal information on our behalf. If you are happy for us to process your data solely for this purpose, please continue by entering your details in the registration form.

Dr Stefan Guldin is an associate professor in Chemical Engineering and head of the Adaptive and Responsive Nanomaterials (AdReNa) group at University College London. In 2021, he was appointed as Deputy Head of Department (Enterprise). He studied Physics at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (2003-05) and the Technical University of Munich (2005-08) and graduated with a PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2012. Subsequently, Stefan carried out postdoctoral research as a scholar of the German Academy of Sciences at before taking up his current position in 2015. His research interests include the study of material formation on the nanoscale by molecular self-assembly, creation of adaptive and responsive materials architectures and translation into real-world applications, ranging from chemical sensors and biomedical diagnostics to electrochemical devices and optical coatings. To date, he has published over 50 peer-reviewed articles as well as six conference proceedings, one book chapter and one book. Stefan is co-founder of the biomedical start-up Vesynta, which is devoted to the development of companion drug monitoring solutions for personalised medicine with currently 4 full-time employees.
