In the O'Reilly group we have extensive activities in the development and implementation of efficient chemistries to allow for the preparation of complex polymeric scaffolds. In particular we have active programs in the development of
- efficient polymer and nanostructure modification
- novel routes to degradable polymerrs
- novel self-reporting fluorogenic probes
- precision polymer synthesis
Through the development of these new methods we can create a toolbox of methods which allow us to design and develop novel functional polymers and nanostructures for applications in a range of areas from sensing to nanomedicine.
