Professor Nguyễn Thị Kim Thanh, FRSC, FInstP, FIMMM FRSB (http://www.ntk-thanh.co.uk) held a prestigious Royal Society University Research Fellowship (2005-2014). She was appointed a Full Professor in Nanomaterials in 2013 at University College London. She leads a very dynamic group conducting cutting edge interdisciplinary and innovative research on the design, and synthesis of magnetic and plasmonic nanomaterials for biomedical applications (e.g., treatment of cancer and diagnosis of infectious diseases).
In 2019, she has been honoured for her achievements in the field of nanomaterials, and her impactful project proposal and was awarded the highly prestigious Royal Society Rosalind Franklin Medal.
In 2014, she organised a workshop on “Exploiting Physical Properties of Nanomaterials for Tackling Infectious Diseases” in Hanoi, Vietnam. This workshop was sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry
She is Editor-in-chief of the Royal Society of Chemistry book Series, Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. She edited 4 theme issues: The Royal Society (2016), Interface Focus, “Multifunctional nanostructures for diagnosis and therapy of diseases”; The Royal Society Chemistry, RSC (2014), Faraday Discussions, “Physical Chemistry of Functionalised Biomedical Nanoparticles"; RSC (2013) Nanoscale, Special issue "Functional Nanoparticles for Biomedical Applications" and Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A (2010), “Nanoparticles”. She is the sole editor of two seminal books on Magnetic Nanoparticles from Fabrication to Clinical Applications and Clinical Applications of Magnetic Nanoparticles. She is coorganising a Magnetic Carrier Meeting in June, 2022 in London. http://magneticmicrosphere.com/meeting-thirteenth
