Charles M. Lieber

Mark Hyman Professor of Chemistry, and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences

Harvard University

Charles M. Lieber pursued his doctoral studies at Stanford University and carried out postdoctoral research at the California Institute of Technology. In 1987 he assumed an Assistant Professor position at Columbia University, where he initiated research addressing the synthesis and properties of low-dimensional materials. He moved to Harvard University in 1991 and now holds a joint appointment in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, as the Mark Hyman Professor of Chemistry, and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. At Harvard, Lieber has pioneered the synthesis of a broad range of nanoscale materials, the characterization of the unique physical properties of these materials, the development of methods of hierarchical assembly of nanoscale wires, and the demonstration of key uses of these nanomaterials in nanoelectronics and computing, creating and developing nanoelectronics-biology interfaces, nano-enabled energy, and nanophotonics. His work has been recognized by a number of awards, including the MRS Fred Kavli Distinguished Lectureship in Nanoscience (2010), ACS Inorganic Nanoscience Award (2009), NIH Pioneer Award (2009) ACS Award in the Chemistry of Materials (2004), APS McGroddy Prize for New Materials (2003), MRS Medal (2002), and Feynman Prize in Nanotechnology (2001). Lieber is an elected member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and an elected Fellow of the Materials Research Society, American Physical Society, American Chemical Society and American Association for the Advancement of Science. Lieber is Co-Editor of Nano Letters, and serves on the Editorial and Advisory Boards of a large number of science and technology journals. Lieber has published over 320 papers, which have been cited more than 53,000 times, and is the principal inventor on more than 35 patents. In his spare time, Lieber has been active in commercializing nanotechnology, and has founded several nanotechnology companies.
