The Puskas Group has moved to the Ohio State University! Professor Puskas will be leading the biomaterial and biopolymer engineering program at the Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering (FABE). The program will be losely related to Ohio State’s Discovery Themes Initiative (www.discovery.osu.edu) and Sustainable and Resilient Economy (SRE) program (www.discovery.osu/SRE) and plans to make global impact. The group will be part of the Materials Development Working Group of the Sustainable and Resilient Economy Discovery Theme.(Web:
si.osu.edu; Social media: @OhioStSustain).

Focus areas:
  • Natural Rubber Biosynthesis

  • Biomimetic Polymerizations, Natural Living Carbocationic Polymerization, Model Architectures for Natural Rubber

  • Green(er) Biomaterials, Polyisobutylene (PIB)-based Biomaterials, Enzyme-catalyzed Polymer Functionalization, PEG, Solventless (liquid PDMS, PIB), Surface Modification, Probing the Polymer/Bio Interface, Green dendrimers for drug delivery

  • Greener Living/controlled polymerizations, Controlled lniMer-type Polymerizations, CIMP Controlled Garbocationic IM Polymerization, CRIMP Controlled Radical I M Polymerization, Model architectures

  • Integration of Polymer-based Breast Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment with Breast Reconstruction.
