Stephen Mann,[1][2][3] FRS, FRSC, (born 1 April 1955) is Professor of Chemistry, Director of the Centre for Organized Matter Chemistry,[4] Director of the Centre for Protolife Research,[5] and was Principal of the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials[6] at the University of Bristol, UK.

Education[edit]

Mann was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology in 1976,[7] and a DPhil from the University of Oxford in 1982 under the supervision of Professor R. J. P. Williams FRS.[8]

Career[edit]

Following his DPhil, Mann was elected to a Junior Research Fellowship at Keble College, University of Oxford,[9] and then awarded a lectureship at the University of Bath in 1984[9] where he was appointed to a full professorship in 1990. Professor Mann moved to the University of Bristol in 1998.[10]

Research[edit]

Mann’s research is concerned with the chemical synthesis, characterization and emergence of complex forms of organized matter. His research activities include: biomineralization,[11][12] biomimetic materials chemistry,[13] synthesis and self-assembly of nanoscale objects,[14] functional nanomaterials,[15] complexity and emergent behaviour in hybrid nanostructures,[16] and solvent-free liquid proteins.[17] His current work is focused on the design and construction of synthetic protocells.[18] Mann has published over 480 scientific papers with a current h-index of 112 and over 45,000 citations,[19] and is listed in the 2014 Thomson Reuters index of world’s most influential scientific minds.[20]

Awards and honours[edit]

Mann was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, UK in 2003.[2] Other accolades include:
