Principal Investigator:
Associate Professor
   
Recruiting
 
There are two postdoc positions available in the areas of:

1. Nanocomposites

2. Peptide-Polymer Conjugate Micelles for Drug Delivery


We are currently looking for graduate students (admitted to Berkeley already) in the following areas:

Peptide-Polymer Conjugate Micelles for Drug Delivery


Our Focus
 
We work on the design, synthesis, and characterization of de novo designed peptides that serve as building blocks for functional biomaterials. We also seek to understand the hierarchical self-assembly of complex systems involving artificial proteins, block copolymers, and nanoparticles. In addition, we develop new functional materials at the molecular level that exhibit novel electronic, photonic, and biological properties.
