Polymer Therapeutics: From PolymerDrugs to Polymeric Micelles

Seminar

Free and open to the public

Current research has shown that polymers themselves are bioactive - they actively coordinate with binding domains on low density lipoproteins. In addition, the polymeric micelles can be slightly modified for complexation with oligonucleotides and plasmids. Second, PolymerDrugs are polymers that biodegrade into therapeutically useful molecules.
