Bio-inspired, multifunctional Block Copolymers to absorb Cholesterol and Calcium – Towards dissolution of Atherosclerotic Plaques

Philipp Keckeis

University of Konstanz

Philipp Keckeis is a PhD Student in the University of Konstanz, Germany since 2015. He is member of the research group of Helmut Cölfen and works in the field of polymer chemistry. His research includes the synthesis of multifunctional polymers which self-assemble into polymeric nanoparticles and absorb cholesterol molecules.  Apart from the Uni, Philipp has o lot of outdooractivities in the Alps, plays volleyball and enjoys the time with his family.


Coronary atherosclerosis and the related cardiovascular diseases constitute one of the most serious health problems in the Western Hemisphere, which causes around 40 % of all deaths.[1] Based on the high lethal number of... [ view full abstract ]
