Marc A Ilies
Associate Professor, Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences
Temple University, USA


Dr. Marc A Ilies was born and educated in Romania receiving his BSc degree from University of Bucharest in 1995 and his MSc degree from the same university in 1996 after a short stage at ENSC Lille France in the framework of the Francophone Teaching Module In 1996.He joined as Professor Alexandru T Balaban’s group at the Polytechnic University of Bucharest receiving his PhD in 2001. From 1997 he was also a faculty in the Department of Chemistry School of Biotechnologies University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine in Bucharest. In 2001 he followed Dr. Balaban at Texas AM University in Galveston TX for postdoctoral studies aimed to develop new pyridinium cationic lipids for gene delivery in close collaboration with the groups of Drs. E Brad Thompson and Robert Garfield from UTMB Galveston where he was a visiting scientist In 2004. Dr. Ilies relocated to University of Pennsylvania for postdoctoral studies in selfassembling dendrons and dendrimers with Dr. Virgil Percec and cancer pharmacology with Drs Vladimir Muzykantov and Ian Blair. Since 2007 he is assistant professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences School of Pharmacy Temple University. He has published over 40 scientific papers reviews and book chapters and has coauthored one US patent. He also serves in the editorial boards of two medicinal chemistry journals.

Research Interest

His research interests fit within the broadly-defined bio-organic and medicinal chemistry at membrane interfaces using pyridinium compounds, being focused on the development of chemical solutions for the delivery of drugs and genes. His group is currently pursuing selective carbonic anhydrase inhibitors and activators and pyridinium gene transfer systems.
