 What Does it Cover?

Poly(2-oxazoline) (POx) is a very promising candidate for use in polymer therapeutics. Amphiphilic POx triblock copolymers can be used as high capacity drug delivery systems for hydrophobic drugs, like paclitaxel, and exhibit synergistic effects for the delivery of multiple chemotherapeutics.  In this talk, Professor Jordan will highlight the unparalleled high drug-loading capacities of POx systems, the polymer structural variability, and outline the consequences of the drug loading on the drug delivery system morphology.

 What Will You Learn?

  • Properties and advantages of polyoxazolines
  • Methods for drug formulation with polyoxazolines
  • Drug loading in polyoxazolines-based drug delivery systems
  • Application of polyoxazoline drug delivery systems (cancer)

 Who Should Attend?

  • Pharmaceutical Scientists
  • Biomedical Engineers
  • Medicinal Chemists
  • Polymer Chemists
  • Drug Delivery Researchers
