Our group’s research interests focus in designing polymer materials by identify important structure-property relationships. Well-defined polymers i.e., polymers of defined molar mass, composition and architecture are synthesised and characterised and then evaluated in different applications. We have a special interest in thermogels, polymers that respond to temperature to form gels, which can be used in tissue engineering, drug delivery and 3D printing applications. This topic will be the focus of the talk but other topics like polymer-glass hybrids and other nanoparticles that have been used for drug and gene delivery will be discussed as well.
