About the Speaker:

Matthew Webber is the Keating-Crawford Collegiate Professor of Engineering and an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Notre Dame (USA). His research group is interested in applying supramolecular principles, leveraging defined and rationally designed non-covalent interactions, to improve biomaterials and drug delivery. Prof. Webber received a BS in Chemical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University. Subsequently, he was an NIH NRSA postdoctoral fellow at MIT. He is the recipient of the American Diabetes Association Pathway Accelerator Award and the JDRF Career Development award, and was named by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers as one of the “35 under 35” young leaders shaping the field in 2017. He also received the NSF CAREER award in 2020 and was inducted to the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering in 2023.
