The Webber lab is building an interdisciplinary group of researchers comprised of engineers, chemists, and biologists, all of whom are interested in building things and solving important problems. A commonality within their work is using supramolecular principles to develop creative solutions for issues that arise in healthcare, specifically toward the generation of improved therapeutics. As such, they build platforms based on predictable, tunable, modular, and high-affinity supramolecular interactions that offer unrivaled control over emergent properties. This affords problem-specific tailoring of materials, devices, or constructs to address the task at hand with enabling technologies. The interdisciplinary nature of this work necessitates a highly collaborative culture, and they actively seek partners from throughout the University of Notre Dame as well as the regional and global academic community. In addition, they are always open to partnering with industry leaders in order to help advance ideas to market.
