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

DR. NICK MOON + DR. TIM LONG + DR. JOE DENNIS + DR. ALLISON PEKKANEN + RYAN MONDSCHEIN

Congrats to Drs. Tim Long Nick Moon (former post doc), Joe Dennis (former student), Allison Pekkanen (former student), and current student Ryan Mondschein on their two recent publications: ‘Thiol-Michael ‘Click’ Hydrogels as an Imageable Packing Material for Cancer Therapy’ in Polymer – and – ‘Synthesis of Polysulfone-Containing Poly(butylene terephthalate) Segmented Block Copolymers: Influence of Segment Length on Thermomechanical Performance’ in Macromolecules.

RYAN MONDSCHEIN + DR. NICK MOON + DR. TIM LONG

Check out the latest inside cover of Polymer Chemistry. It’s for Dr. Long, Ryan, and Nick Moon’s paper, which was published a few months ago. Well done, Ryan, who crafted the image!

JUNE

RYAN MONDSCHEIN + DR. LONG

Congrats to Ryan and Dr. Long on their recently published paper “Polymer structure-property requirements for stereolithographic 3D printing of soft tissue engineering scaffolds” in Biomaterials. Nice!
