Martin Poncelet, M.Sci.

   Martin holds a master degree from the Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium) in organic chemistry. He then moved to industry where he acquired expertise in the field of immunoassays for medical diagnosis. After 8 years of industrial experience, he moved back to the university in 2016  to join the IMMR center at the West Virginia University where he is now a synthetic chemist involved in the development of multifunctional EPR probes.

The sphere of interest:

    His current research is focused on the synthesis and characterization of biocompatible stable triarylmethyl radicals used as spin label for biomedical EPR.
