At the invitation of College of chemistry and chemical engineering and Gansu Key Laboratory of nonferrous metals chemistry and resources utilization, Professor Du Jianzhong of Tongji University came to our university to give an academic report.
Speaker:Professor Du Jianzhong
Report title:Biomedical Polymer Vesicles
Report time:December 8, 2020 (Tuesday) 16: 00
Report location:Academic Lecture Hall 101, Second Chemical Building
Brief introduction of the speaker:
Du Jianzhong, Distinguished Professor of Tongji University, National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars (2019), Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, Member of the Polymer Subject Committee of the Chinese Chemical Society, Member of the Biomacromolecules Branch of the Chinese Society for Biomaterials, Editorial board member of “Biomacrolecules”, “Journal of polymer”, etc. Ph.D., Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (2004), University of Sheffield, University of Cambridge, UK (2004~2010), Humboldt Scholar of Germany (2006), Professor of Tongji University (Oriental Scholar) since 2010. The main research areas are polymer chemistry and physics, and biomedical materials. More than 110 academic papers have been published in journals such as JACS. Its "sugar control sugar" achievement was reported by "C&EN", and was adapted into a youth science book by "Science News for Students" in the United States.
Summary of the report:
Polymer vesicles are nano materials with the structure of "cavity inner crown film outer crown" formed by self-assembly, which have potential applications in biomedicine and other fields. However, traditional vesicles have the same inner and outer crown structure, homogeneous hydrophobic membrane and discrete membrane crown, which are difficult to cope with some important challenges in biomedical field, such as transmembrane transport of macromolecules, differential demand of inner and outer crown, membrane crown synergy, etc. Therefore, we have constructed heterogeneous membrane, asymmetric crown and membrane crown fusion polymer vesicles to solve the above three problems, which provides a new idea for the construction of biomedical polymer vesicles such as blood glucose regulation, angiography, tumor diagnosis and treatment, antibacterial and so on.
