MURI: Unraveling the Biology, Chemistry and Nanoscience of Natural and Synthetic Melanins

Project: Research project

Project Details


The Gianneschi group with expertise in polymer chemistry and biomacromolecular materials science will develop synthesis methods for melanin and synthetic melanin analogues in collaboration with the entire MURI team and collaborators in Belgium and at AFRL. We will participate in the characterization of materials from other labs, and in their structural interpretation, self-assembly and degradation."
