Letteri Polymer (Bio)materials Lab

We are designing materials that synergistically combine synthetic polymers and peptides to unlock new capabilities for the next generation of materials.  Our specific interests include understanding and exploiting stereochemistry-driven interactions and stimuli-responsive motifs to control materials properties, and using polymers to present and encapsulate peptides in ways that maximize their function.
