Matthew L Becker
Professor of Chemistry

The Becker Laboratory for Functional Biomaterials is a multidisciplinary organic materials group working at the interface of chemistry, organic materials and medicine.   We are developing families of degradable polymers with highly tunable physical and biological properties that are being applied to unmet needs in bone, soft tissue, neural and vascular tissue engineering.  We are also actively engages in additive manufacturing and the development of custom inks that are enabling unique solutions to challenging design paradigms in biomaterials and drug delivery.

Current Research Interests

Polymer chemistry; bioconjugate chemistry; molecular imaging and additive manufacturing
Materials for bone, soft tissue, neural and vascular tissue engineering
Drug and protein delivery
Degradable materials for flexible electronics
