Charles M. Lieber was born in Philadelphia. He attended Franklin and Marshall College and graduated with honors in Chemistry. After doctoral studies at Stanford University and postdoctoral research at the California Institute of Technology, he became an Assistant Professor position at Columbia University in 1987 embarking on a new research program addressing the synthesis and properties of low-dimensional materials. Lieber moved to Harvard University in 1991 and now holds a joint appointment in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, as the Mark Hyman Professor of Chemistry, and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Lieber has pioneered the synthesis of a broad range of nanoscale materials, the characterization of the unique physical properties of these materials and the development of methods of hierarchical assembly of nanoscale wires, together with the demonstration of applications of these materials in nanoelectronics, nanocomputing, biological and chemical sensing, neurobiology, and nanophotonics. He has developed and applied a new chemically sensitive microscopy for probing organic and biological materials at nanometer to molecular scales.. Lieber is an elected member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Fellow of the American Physical Society, the Institute of Physics and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Lieber is Co-Editor of Nano Letters, and serves on the Editorial and Advisory Boards of a number of science and technology journals. He has published more than 280 papers and is the principal inventor on more than 30 patents. In his spare time, Lieber founded a nanotechnology company, Nanosys, Inc., with the goal of revolutionizing commercial applications in chemical and biological sensing, computing, photonics and information storage.
