Mgr. Martin Hrubý, Ph.D., DSc

I am Head of the Department of Supramolecular Polymer Systems and Head of the SUPRAMOL Centre (with 45 employees) at Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry, Czech Academy of Sciences. I have been working at IMC since my Master studies throughout the PhD, which I defended in 2006. At IMC, I have been focusing on polymer chemistry, physical chemistry of polymers and self-assembly in polymer systems, drug and radionuclide delivery systems, metal chelation as well as biocompatible polymers. During my carrier, I highly focused on my research and leadership activities, which led to my appointment as the Head of the Department in 2020. I have been Principal investigator or co-investigator of 16 research projects, including a Horizon 2020 project PRECIOUS (GA ID: 686089), where I am responsible for nanoparticle preparation and physico-chemical characterization.

Up to now I have published in total 175 peer-reviewed papers with 2704 citations, 1 monograph and 6 chapters in monographs, 15 invited lectures, current H-index is 26 (WoS). The most cited publication has 327 citations (according to Web of Science). Principal investigator (or co-investigator) of 16 research projects, including a Horizon 2020 project. Author or co-author of 275 original conference contributions, 4 patents (from which one international patent currently licenced and manufactured), 4 utility models and 11 functional samples.
