Research Interests
Research in the Deming group is focused on synthesis, processing, characterization and evaluation of biological and biomimetic materials based on polypeptides. These materials are being studied since they can be prepared from renewable resources, they can be biocompatible and biodegradable, and possess unique self-assembling properties. We utilize innovative chemistry techniques to synthesize materials with properties that rival the complexity found in biological systems. The polymers are then processed into ordered assemblies, which are characterized for both nanoscale structure as well as biological function. This interdisciplinary approach stimulates innovations and ideas which direct this research into new, exciting areas.

Timothy Deming is a professor in the Bioengineering Department as well as the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department.
