Translational research in Chemical Biology is the focus of my research. We explore the transformative power of Organic Chemistry and combine it with Biology and Medicine to develop next generation of materials and therapeutic molecules for biomedical applications.
Our research is directed towards designing biomacromolecules for medical applications, where we use polymers found in the human body's extracellular matrix (ECM) to tailor self-assembled nanocarriers and bulk hydrogels. Innovative synthetic strategies allow formation of these systems to control cell and tissue response to therapeutic agents and material surfaces.
Development of biofunctional synthetic or semi-synthetic materials designed to interact with cells in vivo for regenerative medicine and chemotherapy.
