About Me

Prof. Jean-Paul Lellouche earned his PhD degree in 1981 (University Claude Bernard/La Doua, Lyon, France). In 1997, he moved to the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (Beer-Sheva, Israel) as an Associate Professor in Organic Chemistry. Then, he joined the Department of Chemistry/Ins-titute of Nanotechnology & Advanced Materials (BINA) at Bar-Ilan University since October 2000 as a Full Professor in Organic Chemistry/Nano(bio)technology (July 2008). His current R&D activity includes R&D developments at the cutting-edge Materials Science level interfacing with nano(bio)technology (nanofabrication methodologies & nanomaterial engineering). He has authored 138 peer-reviewed papers, 11 patents and 3 book chapters while attracting more than US$ 6,581,000 in external grant funding.
