In this edition of the Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology Nanobyte podcast, Hai-Quan Mao, professor of materials science and engineering at Johns Hopkins University, discusses his work with polymers and their potential applications for medicine.
In the Mao lab, researchers are using multi-molecule structures called polymers and forming them into different shapes for biomedical applications such as tissue engineering, nerve regeneration, and drug delivery. Mao uses natural models, such virus, as shape templates for designing nanoparticles with specific capabilities.
