Prof Cameron Alexander
Professor of Polymer Therapeutics
Research interests focus on the synthesis of polymers for biomedical applications, especially drug and gene delivery.
Current projects are investigating controlled release of therapeutics from synthetic-biopolymer complexes and conjugates, targeted degradable polymers for gene therapy, and smart materials for protein and cell recognition in solution and at surfaces.
Collaborative projects span disciplines including synthetic chemistry, molecular medicine, cell biology, molecular imprinting and polymer physics.
