The Long Group’s continuing research goal is to integrate fundamental research in novel macromolecular structure and polymerization processes with the development of high performance macromolecules for advanced technologies, including:

 

  1. Drug and gene delivery
  2. Sustainable feed stocks
  3. Adhesives and elastomers
  4. Block copolymers and living polymerization, and
  5. Biomaterials for health and energy
