Assistant Professor Shin-nosuke Nishimura received the Biopolymer Rising Star Lecture Award (Young Researcher Encouragement Presentation) at the 51st Symposium on Biopolymers.
The main purpose of our research group is to develop novel functional polymer soft materials with well-regulated nanostructures. For this purpose, the living biopolymer system such as proteins, which includes exquisite molecular structures and versatile biofunctions, would be a good model. Applying the structural and functional principles of biopolymers to a synthetic macromolecular system is of importance, especially for designing novel smart materials. To achieve these objects, we newly design and synthesize biocompatible and environmentally friendly smart polymers including self-assembling peptides and peptide-polymer hybrids and characterize their properties comprehensively.
