Next-generation electronics will autonomously respond to local stimuli and be seamlessly integrated with the human body, opening doors for remarkable opportunities in environmental monitoring, advanced consumer products, and health diagnostics for personalized therapy. The underpinnings of such electronics is the development of new electronic materials with a wide suite of functional properties beyond our current toolkit. Team Tran will leverage the rich palette of polymer chemistry to design new materials encoded with information for self-assembly, degradability, and electronic transport to address challenges in health and sustainability.
