Mark Woods

Assistant Professor, Portland State University


Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing


Mark Woods received his B.Sc. (Hons) degree from the University of York in 1995. He went on to gain his Ph.D. from the University of Durham in 1998, studying under the supervision of Prof. David Parker. In 1999 he was a TMS fellow at the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 where he worked on palladium catalyzed cascade reactions. In 2000 he returned to the field of lanthanide chemistry joining the group of Prof. Dean Sherry at the University of Texas at Dallas as a postdoctoral research associate. In 2004 Mark took up a post as senior research scientist (imaging) at Macrocyclics. After three years in this post Mark made a return to academic research first at the University of Texas at Dallas before finally moving to Oregon. Mark currently holds a joint appointment with both the Advanced Research Imaging Center at OHSU and the Department of Chemistry at Portland State University. Mark shares his time equally between the two institutions.
