Vishwa Deepak Tripathi

Laboratoire de Chimie de Coordination du CNRS

Vishwa Deepak Tripathi was born in 1986 in Lucknow India. He recieved his Phd in medicinal chemistry from Central Drug Research Institute Lucknow India in 2012. After having Phd he worked for 3 years at pharmaceutical industry for development of antidiabetic molecules and was part of team to develop Saroglitazar (drug for dibaetic dislipidemia). In 2015 he moved in group of (Prof. Anne-Marie Caminade and Prof. Jean-Pierre Majoral) at LCC CNRS as a postdoc and involved in synthesis of some original phosphorous based dendrimers of therapeutic interests.

Helena Henke

Johannes Kepler University Linz

Helena Henke studied chemistry at the University of Vienna (Austria) with a diploma thesis on metal complexes as anticancer agents in the group of Bernhard Keppler and graduated with a Mag. rer. nat. in 2011. Her PhD studies brought her to the Johannes Kepler University Linz (Austria) where she recently completed her PhD on the synthesis of polyphosphazenes with controlled dimensions and unique architectures and their application as nanomedicines under the guidance of Ian Teasdale. She is currently working as a Postdoc at the Johannes Kepler University on polyphosphazenes for medical applications such as tissue engineering.


From its early discovery over three centuries ago, phosphorus has excited medical interest, initially (and misguidedly) in its elemental form, and in our own times as a key building block of molecules essential to life... [ view full abstract ]
