报告人简介：Karen L. Wooley is the W. T. Doherty-Welch Chair in Chemistry and a University Distinguished Professor at Texas A&M University, where she holdsappointments in the Departments of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Materials Science & Engineering. She also serves as Director of theLaboratory for Synthetic-Biologic Interactions. Research interests include the synthesis and characterization of degradable polymers derived fromnatural products, unique macromolecular architectures and complex polymer assemblies, and the design and development of well-definednanostructured materials. The development of novel synthetic strategies, fundamental study of physicochemical and mechanical properties, andinvestigation of the functional performance of her materials in the diagnosis and treatment of disease, as non-toxic anti-biofouling or anti-icingcoatings for the marine environment, as materials for microelectronics device applications, and as pollutant remediation systems are particular fociof her research activities. Her academic training included undergraduate study at Oregon State University (B.S., 1988) and graduate study underthe direction of Professor Jean M. J. Fréchet at Cornell University (Ph.D., 1993). She began an academic career as an Assistant Professor ofChemistry at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, was promoted in 1999 to Full Professor with tenure, was installed as a James S.McDonnell Distinguished University Professor in Arts & Sciences in 2006, and in 2009, Karen relocated to Texas A&M University. Recent awardsinclude the American Chemical Society Award in Polymer Chemistry (2014), Royal Society of Chemistry Centenary Prize (2014), Fellow of the RoyalSociety of Chemistry (2014), Honorary Fellow of the Chinese Chemical Society (2014), Oesper Award (2015), and Fellow of the American Academyof Arts and Sciences (2015). Karen currently serves as an Associate Editor for the Journal of the American Chemical Society, among many otheradvisory roles within the broader scientific community.
