This unique international discussion meeting will bring together researchers from different backgrounds (physical chemistry and biology) to share their knowledge and foster new collaborations and directions.

The meeting will aim to focus on two main strands: the physical chemistry of macromolecules as common ground between biology and polymer science; and the problems associated with biocompatibility and biodegradability of polymers, particularly with regard to their role as therapeutic delivery vehicles.
