We are designing polymeric materials for the use in biomedical applications. In particularly , we are interested in antimicrobial polymers as they are a possible solution to the ever increasing issue of antimicrobial resistance. To create more efficient and selective materials, we are using various tool of polymer chemistry including RAFT-polymerization, ROMP, Cationic ring-opening polymerization, and supramolecular polymerization. We have a specific interest in how the polymeric architecture influences the biological activity of these biomaterials. ...more
