Our research is focused on understanding electrostatic self-assembly systems in biology, and designing biomaterials based on our learnings from the fundamental studies. Ionic biopolymers (“biopolyelectrolytes”), their chemical derivatives and “aggregates” of these macromolecules with organic and inorganic nanocolloids are our tools in designing systems for applications such as wet-tissue adhesive or bone-mimetic materials. Thus, our research is highly multidisciplinary being at the intersection of polymers, colloids, nanotechnology, and bioanalytical chemistry.
