CV A. Klymchenko
Andrey Klymchenko was born in Kherson, Ukraine, in 1976. He started his research with chemistry and photophysics of new fluorescent dyes, which was a subject of his PhD degree from Kiev National University in 2003. Then, he worked in the University of Strasbourg in a group of Yves Mely, where he could combine synthesis of new dyes with their bioimaging applications. In 2005, in order to extend his expertise towards supramolecular chemistry and nanotechnology, he moved to Catholic University of Leuven, group of Steven de Feyter. Then, he joined CNRS in 2006, received CNRS Bronze Medal in 2010 and was promoted to Director of Research in 2014. In 2015, he obtained ERC consolidator grant BrightSens to work on fluorescent nanoparticles for ultrasensitive detection of cancer markers.
