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.
