Sellamuthu Anbu received a PhD degree in Inorganic Chemistry in 2010 from the University of Madras, India. After spending a semester working as a lecturer in the National Institute of Technology-Calicut, India, he joined the supramolecular chemistry research group of Prof. Partha Sarathi Mukherjee at the Indian Institute of Science in 2011 as a UGC-Kothari postdoctoral fellow. In 2012, he joined as an FCT-Postdoctoral fellow in Prof. Armando J. L. Pombeiro at the Instituto Superior Tecnico, Portugal, and involved in developing fluorescent sensors. In 2015, he was awarded the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship by European Commission to continue his pioneering bioinorganic research at the University of Birmingham, UK. In 2018, he joined as a visiting researcher to the 'Molecular Imaging Chemistry' group led by Dr Graeme J. Stasiuk, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Hull, UK, and developing anion responsive magnetic resonance contrast agents with the support of the Royal Society of Chemistry research grant fund award. He published 32 papers in high quality peer-reviewed international journals (1225–google citations, 'h' index–21). He contributed to more than 40-national/international conferences. Currently, he is doing his postdoc research with Dr Andrew Boa group at the University of Hull and involving in the isolation/purification/syntheses of fatty acid derivatives for biomedical (Alzheimer's disease therapeutic) applications.
