Dr. Nolte’s research focuses on the processing of ultrathin polymer coatings by alternating adsorption of positively and negatively charged polymers (polyelectrolytes) and how various methods used to adsorb the polyelectrolytes affect the ability of the resulting PEM to swell in humid air.
Dr. McClellan’s oversees student researchers seeking to create and characterize drug-loaded nanoparticles. Their work includes particle size analysis, quantification of drug loading, and complete release studies.
