Dr. Anthony William Coleman FRSC was born in Bradford, UK in 1953, he obtained a BA in Chemistry from Jesus College, University of Oxford in 176 and a D. Phil. In Organometallic Chemistry at the University of Sussex in 1980. After post-docs at Université de Rennes and University of Victoria he joined the group of Prof. Jerry. Atwood at the University of Alabama, here he initiated research on calix-arenes, finally observing the solid-state structure of the para-sulphonato-calix[n]arenes in 1986.After a move to the Unvisersité de Paris-Sud in 1987, the research shifted to the use of amphiphilic cyclodextrins and bio-molecule transport. In 1994 ne moved to the Université de Lyon 1 in 1994 and switched back to research on bio-active calix[n]arenes. During this period discoveries were made on Prion detection, membrane protein solubilisation and other biological properties of anioinic calix[n]arenes. A move to the move to the Laboratoire Multimateriaux and Interfaces was accompanied by a move to the biological properties of calix|n]arene capped silver nanoparticles. Since 2012 Dr Coleman has been investigating the chemical possibilities of 3D printed systems.He is author of three hundred research articles, over 120 invited talks and 25 patents. He has numerous international projects underway in particular with the University of Tokyo and the Polish Academy of Sciences. Elected FRSC in 2010, has appointed Associate Editor of RSC Advances in 2015.
