Paul Chen

PhD Institution
University of Toronto

Paul’s PhD work focused on ways to control the structure of nanocrystals, which have important applications in myriad sectors from medicine to clean energy. As a Schmidt Science Fellow, Paul will pivot from chemical engineering to nanoparticle systems. He plans to develop new methods to identify organic nanoparticles with therapeutic potential. Paul hopes this work will lead to establishing a scalable platform to develop safe, effective therapies for many genetic disorders.
