Welcome to the Champion research group in the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. Our work broadly focuses on developing biologically active nanomaterials for therapeutic applications in cancer, wound healing, and auto-immune diseases. We make materials from proteins, allowing us to tune both the specific biological interactions and the physical properties.
