Research Statement

The main thrust of our research is the study of relationships between the structure of synthetic macromolecules and their biorecognition by living tissue. We are studying tailor-made synthetic macromolecules which mimic structures developed by Mother Nature. Biocompatible conjugates are being evaluated as targetable delivery systems for anticancer and antiinflammatory drugs, as protein delivery systems, and new biomaterials. This interdisciplinary approach involves synthetic and physical chemistry, molecular engineering, pharmaceutics, and molecular biology

Research Keywords

  • Genetically Engineered Materials
  • Drug Delivery Systems
  • Biorecognition of Macromolecules
  • Biodegradability of Polymers
