Professor Christopher Bettinger has been selected as the seventh winner of the Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship in recognition of the important contributions he has made to the materials chemistry field. This lectureship honors a younger scientist who has made a significant contribution to the field and is within 10 years of attaining their doctorate or equivalent degree.
The research groups of Kris Matyjaszewski, Michael Bockstaller, and the Bettinger Group publish two articles on the use of tailored synthesis of star block copolymers (Matyjaszewski & Bettinger) and polymer structures to control the formation of nanoparticle geometries (Bockstaller, Matyjaszewski, and Bettinger). These manuscripts are published in the journals Macromolecules and Polymer, respectively.
Proud publishes a paper in in ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering on the use of controlled release strategies to reduce in vivo epidermal down growth in murine model. Insights into controlled release dynamics from elastomeric matrices are also included.
