Natural Science Colloquium Will Discuss Nanomedicine
September 8, 2008
BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – Illinois Wesleyan University will host a natural science colloquium
on Friday, Sept. 12 from 4 to 5 p.m. in room C101 of the Center for Natural Science
Learning and Research (201 E. Beecher St., Bloomington).
The event is free and open to the public.
The speaker, Professor Karen Wooley of Washington University, will give a presentation
titled “Polymer Chemistry as Applied to the Emerging Field of Nanotechnology: An Emphasis
on Devices for Nanomedicine.”
Wooley, who earned a Ph.D. from Cornell University in 1993, is editor of Journal of Polymer Science, Part A: Polymer Chemistry. Her research focuses on the design and synthesis of polymers, which are relatively
large molecules (macromolecules) with repetitious structures.
