THE WECK GROUP
The Weck group is a highly interdisciplinary research group at the intersection of organic chemistry, catalysis, and polymer and materials science. We are motivated by Nature's design principles that rely on weak and reversible interactions between building blocks to introduce function and diversity. The main focus of the research carried out in the Weck group is to combine these noncovalent strategies with living polymerization methods to create polymers for the next generation of materials applications including supported catalysis, opto-electronic materials, viscoelastic solids, surface modifications, drug delivery and tissue engineering.
Congratulations to Drs. Tom Carberry, Mike Kahn, and Yufeng Wang for graduating. Tom and Mike will pursue careers in teaching while Yufeng is a postdoctoral fellow in the Pine lab.
NYU Chemistry Professor Marcus Weck has been selected as a Fellow of the American Chemical Society Polymer Division for 2013. Only approximately .1% of the membership are selected each year. This year’s awardees demonstrate the most outstanding achievements in, and contributions to, polymer science and the profession. Marcus will be formally inducted at an award ceremony on April 10, 2013 at the National Meeting in New Orleans. Look for a complete list of Fellows on the ACS Polymer Division website. Congratulations to Marcus!
