Our mission

Our lab is dedicated to solving problems in medicine through innovative engineering of polymeric materials. We are committed to creating novel polymers with advanced properties, understanding fundamental mechanisms of how polymers interface with biological systems, and translating polymer-based technologies to improve healthcare.
