Improving the drug loading of poloxamer micelle structures could lead to more effective treatments of cancer.
Matthew Green obtained bachelor’s degrees in chemical engineering and chemistry (2007), and a doctorate in chemical engineering Virginia Tech working with Prof. Timothy Long (2011). Then, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Delaware in the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department with professors Thomas Epps, III and Millicent Sullivan. His research is focused on the design and synthesis of novel, ion-containing block copolymers to be used in materials ranging from membranes for water purification to biomedical immunostimulatory therapeutics.
