Supramolecular Polymers for Nanomedicine

 

Supramolecular polymers obtained through the self-association or hetero-association of self-assembling modules has yielded materials with unprecedented physical properties and chemical tunability. Unlike their covalent congeners they are in equilibrium with their oligomeric and monomeric states and can therefore be responsive, adaptive, and self-replicative.  This lecture will focus on a new class of self-assembling hetero-polycyclic molecules capable of forming 1D nanostructures with emerging properties and an exceptional potential for targeted gene silencing. 

Date: February 1, 2017

Time: 10:30 am

Location: SSB 7172, SFU Burnaby

Light refreshments to be provided
