Welcome to the Neumann lab
Our group is interested in utilizing nanomedicinal approaches to overcome existing challenges in drug delivery that cannot be addressed by traditional pharmaceutical approaches such as efficient precision medicine. We focus on the design and synthesis of complex macromolecular structures with applications in the field of nanomedicine. Another major aim of our research is the in-vivo synthesis of drug molecules directly at the site of interest by utilizing highly functionalized polymer scaffolds, an interdisciplinary research that intertwines organic and polymer chemistry with medicine.
During the last year, Katerina, Dulce and Qi started their PhD studies and several MSc students joined our team for their final internship. We wanted to celebrate the one-year anniversary of our group with past, present and future group members!
Welcome to the team, Qi!
Also in October, Qi joined our group as a PhD candidate. With a background in organic chemistry, Qi will develop new nanoreactors. Welcome to the group, Qi!
Welcome to the team, Dulce!
This month Dulce joined our group as a PhD candidate. Dulce will work in the field of polymer chemistry and drug delivery. Welcome to the group, Dulce!
Publication in Polymer Chemistry
Congratulations to Georgia on her publication in RSC Polymer Chemistry! Georgia describes poly(ylides) as a new class of zwitterionic polymers. These zwitterionic poly(ylides) are easily accessible by radical polymerisation and display distinct thermal and solution behaviour!
Funded PhD Position available
We are hiring! Our group is looking for PhD candidates starting this summer! We are looking for students with a synthetic chemistry background who want to work at the interface of chemistry and medicine. The PhD candidate will work in the field of drug delivery and drug activation including polymer chemistry and the development of new approaches for accessing functionalized polymeric nanostructures. Please send your application directly to Kevin (with a CV, letter of interest and transcript of records).
First Group Picture
Since the university is opening slowly the doors again, we decided that it is time for our first group picture! Please note the fantastic periodic table in the background.
Start of Master Internships
We are very excited to welcome Georgia, Peter and Elija for their master internships in our lab!
Welcome to the team, Katerina!
This month Katerina Gavriel joined our group as a PhD candidate. Katerina will work in the field of drug activation and delivery. Welcome to the group, Katerina!
Bachelor and Master internships
We have positions for Bachelor and Master internships for the next academic year available in our group. If you are interested, you can send a message directly to Kevin.
Funded PhD position available
Our group is looking for PhD students starting this autumn! We are looking for students with a synthetic background in organic- and polymer-chemistry who want to work at the interface of chemistry and medicine. Currently we are interested in in-vivo drug synthesis and biocompatible polymerizations. For more details, please contact Kevin directly (with a CV and letter of interest).
New homepage is online
We are finally online! Here, you will find updates and information about our research and team. Check back soon for photos of our lab and open positions.
