Dr. Reineke presents at Pacifichem 2015, featured in ACS Axial Macromolecular Chemistry collection

Dr. Reineke is presenting at the Pacifichem 2015 conference from Dec. 15-20. These talks will highlight recent work in nucleic acid delivery, sustainable polymers, and oral drug delivery: “Sugar-coated polyplexes: Designed glycopolymers for nucleic acid delivery,” “Sustainable and degradable polymers from glucose and castor oil,” and “Design of tunable multifunctional polymers for solubilizing highly lipophilic drugs.”
