Event Title

Degradable Conductive Polymers for Biomedical Applications

Research Mentor(s)

Amanda Murphy

Description

Conducting polymers have shown promising results for biomedical applications and nanotechnologies. However, these results are limited to experiments that take place outside of the body because their brittle structure and non-biodegradability pose limitations as far as biomedical applications are concerned. Here, progress towards the synthesis and characterization of a biodegradable conducting polymer that is crosslinked via disulfide bonds will be presented.
