The Chilkoti group carries out research in two areas: (1) Biomolecular Materials, with a focus on genetically encoded stimulus responsive peptide polymers and fusion proteins for application in protein purification and drug delivery; and (2) Biointerface Science, with a focus on protein-polymer conjugates, the development of low-cost, point-of-care clinical diagnostics, and plasmonic biosensors.

The Chilkoti Group has just returned from a strong showing at the 2013 BMES Annual Meeting. Many of our student/postdocs gave talks and presented posters, but perhaps our biggest accomplishment was the fact that Tosh was chosen to deliver the Pritzker Distinguished Lecture, which is the society's most prestigious award. Linked is a summary of the event from BMES. Congrats to Tosh and everyone else who made excellent presentations!

We want to announce that Eric was recognized by the BME department as an Outstanding TA for his efforts in starting the new Physiology course (BME 244). Eric was so awesome that students actually went to Engineering Dean Katsouleas to express their appreication. Also, Jeff snagged a Pre-Doctoral CBTE Fellowship. Great work, Eric and Jeff!
