JCCC SeminarDr. Heather Maynard

Presented by:
Heather Maynard, Ph.D., M.S.
Professor, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry
Director, Chemistry Biology Interface Training Program
Member, JCCC Cancer Nanotechnology Program Area

Dr. Heather Maynard’s laboratory integrates synthetic polymers with naturally-derived biomolecules to treat and detect cancer. The group develops novel synthetic methods to make important classes of cancer therapeutics including protein- or siRNA-polymer conjugates. They also focus on delivery of small molecule cancer drugs from nanocapsules. In addition, they develop diagnostics for the early detection of cancer. Maynard's approach involves many disciplines including polymer chemistry, biochemistry and nanofabrication.
