Founded in 2000, the ACS journal Biomacromolecules is a leading forum for the dissemination of cutting-edge research at the interface of polymer science and biology.

-2019, Oct 18th: LCPO Team 4 leader Pr Georges Hadziioannou was made Doctor Honoris Causa of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece.

-2019, Oct 15th: LCPO director and Team 3 leader Pr Sébastien Lecommandoux was awarded a presigious award of the French Academy of Sciences, the 2019 SEQUENS Prize for his works on therapeutic polymers!

 

A WORD FROM THE DIRECTOR

“Since its creation in 1985, the Laboratoire de Chimie des Polymères Organiques (LCPO) has been focusing its academic research in Polymer Science on the mechanisms of polymerization and macromolecular engineering.
While these two domains are still the background of our activity, important projects are oriented towards the design of functional high value-added polymers and the study of their macroscopic properties for target applications, in particular in the domains of life sciences, energy and technology. Green and biomimetic synthetic approaches together with the understanding of structure/properties relationships are presenting the core of our scientific strategy.”
