职称：professor of UCLA
Paul S. Weiss holds a UC Presidential Chair and is a distinguished professor of chemistry & biochemistry and of materialsscience & engineering at UCLA. He received his S.B. and S.M. degrees inchemistry from MIT in 1980 and his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University ofCalifornia at Berkeley in 1986. He was a postdoctoral member of technical staffat Bell Laboratories from 1986-88 and a visiting scientist at IBM AlmadenResearch Center from 1988-89. He served as the director of the California NanoSystemsInstitute and held the Fred Kavli Chair in NanoSystems Sciences at UCLA from2009-14. Before coming to UCLA, he was a distinguished professor of chemistryand physics at the Pennsylvania State University, where he began his academiccareer in 1989. His interdisciplinary research group includes chemists,physicists, biologists, materials scientists, mathematicians, electrical andmechanical engineers, computer scientists, clinicians, and physicianscientists. They focus on the ultimate limits of miniaturization, exploringthe atomic-scale chemical, physical, optical, mechanical, and electronicproperties of surfaces, interfaces, and supramolecular assemblies. They developnew techniques to expand the applicability and chemical specificity of scanningprobe microscopies. They apply these and other tools to study self- anddirected assembly, and molecular and nanoscale devices. They advancenanofabrication down to ever smaller scales and greater chemical specificity tooperate and to test functional molecular assemblies, and to connect these tothe biological and chemical worlds. Two major themes in his laboratory arecooperativity in functional molecules and single-molecule/assembly biologicalstructural and functional measurements. He has written over 300 publications,holds over 30 patents, and has given over 700 invited, plenary, keynote, andnamed lectures.
