ABSTRACT: Pressure Sensitive Adhesives (PSA’s) are adhesives which forms a bond when pressure is applied between the adhesive and the adhered (substrate). PSA is tacky at room temperature and requires no activation by water, solvent or heat to form a strong bond. Glass transition temperature (Tg) of the adhesive is well below the room temperature.
ABSTRACT: Chemical engineers creatively fuse the physical and chemical sciences with biology and mathematics to design processes and products that improve people’s lives. Our research group at the University of British Columbia has interpreted this compelling vision quite literally, and we pass our time applying chemical engineering to address some of the most pressing challenges in health and medicine. My seminar will detail two endeavours that sit at either end of the drug discovery and development pipeline.
