Pokorski Lab

Research at the interface of chemistry, biology, and materials science

Polymers for Biomedicine: Design, Fabrication, and Applications

The Pokorski Lab’s vision is to develop novel materials for biomedical applications by pursuing interdisciplinary research that combines chemistry, protein engineering and materials science. Our lab uses chemical synthesis, polymer processing and molecular biology to improve upon and introduce new functions into biomacromolecules. Students and postdoctoral fellows will learn a wide breadth of skills including small molecule, peptide, and polymer synthesis, molecular cloning and protein production, cell culture and polymer processing technologies.
