Research areas include synthetic organic and polymer chemistry, polymer therapeutics and prodrugs, polymer-DNA polyplexes for gene therapy.
Our research program emphasizes the synthesis of new materials, including polymers, nanoscale particles, and polymer-drug conjugates that target a variety of applications in materials science and therapeutics. New synthetic methods are required to overcome limitations of conventional polymers and particles that can be purchased commercially. Our efforts have produced new functionalized materials that are tailored for interfacial assembly, biocompatibility, in vivo injectables, encapsulation, and controlled release.
