Brief Summary of research:
Research in the Fichman lab is at the intersection of chemical biology, bionanotechnology, and materials science, focusing on functional bioinspired materials for food and healthcare applications. We exploit self-assembling systems to develop advanced biomaterials and characterize them at the nano-, micro-, and macro-scale.
Specific research topics related to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology:
Self-assembly | Peptides | Food-gels | Bacteria-material interactions | Antibacterial materials | Drug delivery
