Polymeric Biomaterials Made with Green Chemistry Approaches

Professor Julian X. X. Zhu, Département de chimie, Université de Montréal

Abstract: To improve the biocompatibility and bioacceptance of polymers used for biomedical and pharmaceutical applications, we have used natural biological compounds in the design and preparation of a variety of new polymers for use as biomaterials. These polymers include self-healing hydrogels and degradable elastomers with shape-memory properties. We also adopt green chemistry approaches in the synthesis of degradable polyesters using immobilized enzymes as catalysts.

Bibliography: Julian Zhu is a professor of chemistry at Université de Montréal. He held a Canada Research Chair in polymeric biomaterials and now holds a Université de Montréal Chair. His team works on the research and development of new polymers for biomedical and pharmaceutical applications. He is a co-author of over 260 scientific publications and several patents. He also received the Macromolecular Science and Engineering Award from the Chemical Institute of Canada.

Elections 2018-2019

Hi everyone,

The Canadian Biomaterials Society-Montreal Student Chapter is pleased to announce our coming election in about a month. Please contact us if you are interested in joining our team. We are always looking for motivated teammates.

Currently, we will have openings in all our roles. However, some of our current team members will also run for some positions. Vacant positions include president, vice president, secretary, and other roles. We are always looking for associate members if you want to first know how our team works.

Briefly, we are a group of graduate students interested in biomaterials. We organize at least one research seminar every semester. Last February, we organized the 3rd Montreal Biomaterials Research Day at CRCHUM. We had both academic and industry researchers presenting their exciting research achievements in this event. It turned out a great gathering of more than 120 students and many postdoctoral fellows, professors, and industry representatives. We hope that the next council will continue on our way.

The seminary will be held on September 27th and will welcome a professor’s presentation soon to be announced.

Thank you !

Dear respected participants,

A big thank you to all of you for making ​ the 3rd Montreal Biomaterials Research Day such a successful event. It was not possible without YOU, our wonderful ​SPEAKERS, our ​supportive ​SPONSORS and our inspiring ​MENTOR.


We hope to see you in our future events.
