Prof. Martin received a bachelors degree in optometry, a masters degree in biomedical engineering and a PhD in biomechanics of contact lenses/biophysics of the anterior eye from the University of New South Wales (Australia). He was awarded the inaugural Medical Foundation Post-Doctoral Fellowship (3 years) to complete postdoctoral training in electrophysiology at the University of Sydney. He then continued the first part of his career in Australia, until 2008, with scientific and academic positions at St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney and the University of Technology Sydney. From 2003-2008 he was an executive board member of the Australian French Association for Science and Technology (AFAS NSW). In 2005 he initiated the Australian network in nanobiotechnology called OzNano2Life, which directly funded postdoctoral researchers in several universities and institutions across Australia and provided the portal for exchanging structured scientific information with nanotechnology institutes in Europe. In 2009 he was awarded a French Chaire d’Excellence to establish a research program in nanobiosciences at the Fondation Nanosciences and the Université Grenoble Alpes. In 2013 he was appointed to the continuing position of Professeur des Universités, Université Grenoble Alpes. He also has an honorary position at the University of Melbourne (Australia). He is the co-author on 11 patents, more than 100 publications and is co-founder in 3 Australian startups. His book on nanobiotechnology published by Springer in 2007 was translated to Russian and published in 2012 by Nauchny Mir, Moscow.
