The FEBS Junior Section is organised by students and young researchers from some FEBS Constituent Societies. They develop joint activities, such as online talks and other events, and share resources, as well as open doors for young European scientists to opportunities outside their home countries by providing the relevant contacts and fostering communication within the network.
Subham Preetam is a professional biotechnologist who collaborates with a creative bio-robotics researcher. His area of expertise lies in early-stage research in biomedical robotics engineering, with a particular interest in quantum engineering for the manufacturing of bio-hybrid robots. He is dedicated to the advancement of precision medicine and successful preclinical research to enhance the quality of life for individuals.
With extensive cross-disciplinary training and experience in translational research, Mr. Preetam is currently focused on various research topics, including micro-robotics, soft bio-hybrid robots, and quantum nanorobot fabrication for removing heavy metals from ocean water. His research aims to improve the life expectancy of sea animals and humans.
Furthermore, he is involved in developing a bio-fluidics nanomedicine system that leverages the latest drug delivery technologies to create personalized solutions for brain cancer patients in South Korea and Sweden. Additionally, he collaborates with researchers from India, Taiwan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, the US, China, Denmark, Singapore, Spain, Portugal, and the United Kingdom on various collaborative projects.
I obtained my PhD in plant molecular biology from the University of Nottingham and have spent the past 30 years in science publishing. I've worked for various journals, including Nature and Trends in Biochemical Sciences, and also edited many books. I was the Executive Editor of FEBS Open Bio from its launch in 2011 until 2019.
