Dr. Paolo Samorì (Imola, Italy, 1971) is full professor (PR1) and senior member as well as deputy director of the Institut de Science et dIngénierie Supramoléculaires (ISIS) of the Université de Strasbourg (UdS) where he is also Director of the Nanochemistry Laboratory. He is also a junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France (IUF) from 2010 til 2015. He obtained a Laurea (master’s degree) in Industrial Chemistry at University of Bologna in 1995. In 2000 he received his Ph.D in Chemistry from the Humboldt University Berlin (Prof. J.P. Rabe). He was permanent research scientist at Istituto per la Sintesi Organica e la Fotoreattività of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche of Bologna from 2001 til 2008, and Visiting Professor at ISIS from 2003 til 2008. He has published >140 papers on applications of scanning probe microscopies beyond imaging, hierarchical self-assembly of hybrid architectures at surfaces, supramolecular electronics, and the fabrication of molecular-scale nanodevices. His work has been awarded various prizes, including the young scientist awards at EMRS (1998) and MRS (2000) as well as the IUPAC Prize for Young Chemists 2001, the Vincenzo Caglioti award 2006 granted by the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei ,the “Nicolò Copernico” award 2009 (Italy) for his discoveries in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, the prix "Guy Ourisson" 2010 du Cercle Gutenberg and the ERC starting grant 2010. He is member of the advisory board of Advanced Materials and ChemPhysChem (Wiley-VCH), Journal of Materials Chemistry as well as Nanoscale (RSC).Bibliometric: publications in peer review journals> 150, citations >3500, h-index=33
