Life Science Monday Seminar

Medicinal polymer chemistry:
From polymer design to therapeutic benefit and back

Speaker:  Associate Professor Alexander N. Zelikin
Affiliation:  Aarhus University, Department of Chemistry, Aarhus, Denmark

“Antiviral macromolecular prodrugs, innovative bioconjugation techniques, and engineering of biocatalytic materials for biomedicine ‐ these areas of research are in the focus of our lab and during this presentation, we will discuss our recent findings on these avenues. I will present the development of biocatalytic implants as novel tools for site‐specific drug delivery. We will also discuss the design of macromolecular prodrugs as broad‐spectrum antiviral agents. Finally, I will outline our recent successes in delivery of latency reversing agents against HIV. Presentation aims to be of interest for diverse audience, specifically scientists in the fields of polymer science and engineering, medicinal chemistry, biomaterials, and virology.”
There will be sandwiches and soft drinks, first come first serve.
The Life Science Monday Seminars will display the wide range of
Life Science activities in the Gothenburg region, but we will also have speakers from abroad.
Academia, research institutes, and industry will be represented.
It is our goal to increase the interaction between education, research, and
innovation in order to make the Life Science environment at Chalmers more dynamic.
