Dr Redouane Borsali is a CNRS Director of Research, and since 2007 the Director of CERMAV, Centre de Recherche sur les Macromolecules Végétales, CNRS-UPR 5301, located on the Campus of Joseph Fourier University of Grenoble, France. He studied Physics at the University of Tlemcen, Algeria and received his Master and Ph.D. in Polymer Physics at the Institute Charles Sadron (Louis Pasteur University, Strasbourg, France) in 1988. After his postdoctoral research position at the Max-Planck-Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) at Mainz, Germany, he joined the CNRS (Grenoble, France) as a researcher in 1990. In 1995/97, he spent a sabbatical leave at Stanford University and at IBM Almaden Research Center, CA, USA as a visiting scientist. In 2000 he joined the LCPO, a Polymer Research CNRS Laboratory, as the Polymer Physical-Chemistry Group Leader until 2006 and returned to Grenoble in 2007 as the Director of CERMAV. His main research activities are focused on the study of the physical-chemistry properties such as the Structure, Dynamics and Self-assemblies of "Soft Matter" of Controlled Architecture Polymers such as block copolymers, polymer mixtures, polyelectrolytes including polysaccharides, nanoparticles such as micelles, vesicles and rod-like morphologies, using scattering techniques. He is the author or co-author of over 140 research articles and two books.
