Daniela Wilson (1978, Comanesti, Romania) received her BSc in Chemistry and Physics in 2001, and her MSc in Environmental Chemistry in 2003 from Al. I. Cuza University of Iasi (Romania). In 2007 she obtained her PhD summa cum laude from the Gheorghe Asachi Technical University of Iasi on research into the relationship between structure and properties in mesogenic systems (liquid crystals).
As an Exchange PhD student, she stayed at the Himeji Institute of Technology, Japan, (2003-2004), as EU Marie Curie Fellow (2004-2005) and as a guest researcher (2006-2007) at the University of Hull, UK. She worked as postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA (2007 – 2010) and in 2010 she became a researcher at the Radboud University Institute for Molecules and Materials. She is a visiting lecturer (honorary position) at the Gheorghe Asachi University of Iasi.
Daniela Wilson received a large number of scholarships and honors, such as the Nano-Micro Letters Researcher Award 2016 for research excellence in the field of nano- and micro- science, Aspasia 2016 by NWO, Nanoscience Award 2015, the Athena Prize of NWO (2015) for Excellence Female Chemists, an ERC Starting Grant for her self-assembly nanorakets research (2012) and a Vidi grant from NWO in 2015 for translating the nanomotor research into the clinic; the use of locomotive self-assembled carriers for targeted drug delivery and diagnostics.
