Design and synthesis of NOVEL denrimeric structures for applications in various biomedical and biological sciences. The idea is to design structures as building blocks that can impart specific function to materials.




Projects involve organic synthesis of dendrons, dendrimer and multi-arm polymers that can be functionalized for particular function such as drug delivery or disease diagnostics. Techniques/tools such as organic synthesis, NMR characterizations, GPC, MALDI mass spectroscopy, drug and protein conjugation are employed.
