The Wettig lab group, led by Professor Shawn Wettig, focuses on design, synthesis, and characterization of compounds called surfactants. Surfactants (short for surface active agents) lower the interfacial tension between two liquids or between a liquid and a solid or air, and are added to products like medications, detergents, skin creams and more. Professor Wettig’s lab specializes in building new types of surfactants with the aim of improving how drugs are delivered into human bodies.
