Joy Research Group


The central theme of the Joy Lab is in developing advanced polymeric materials for applications in medicine and engineering. We design and develop polymers in three research areas i) multivalent biomaterials to modulate physical and biological responses ii) photoresponsive materials that degrade, crosslink or change their mechanical or adhesive properties iii) self-assembling polymers that exhibit emergent material properties and will be useful for applications such as therapeutic delivery. The above polymers are polyesters, polycarbonates, polyurethanes or polyacrylates.
