Polymer Chemistry

New polymer biomaterials are designed to trigger desired biological responses with the aim of resolving clinically relevant questions. Special emphasis is given to tissue regeneration and drug delivery where new materials are synthesized and evaluated in vitro and in vivo.

Research groups

Varghese Group

The focus of my research is to realize the transformative power of Chemistry at the interface between Cell and Molecular Biology and Medicine. Our research interests are in the interdisciplinary fields of biomolecular chemistry, with a focus on the chemistry and biochemistry of nucleic acids and natural biomolecules.
