Macromolecular prodrugs from poly(organo)phosphazenes

Helena Henke

Johannes Kepler University Linz

Helena Henke studied chemistry at the University of Vienna (Austria) with a diploma thesis on metal complexes as anticancer agents in the group of Bernhard Keppler and graduated with a Mag. rer. nat. in 2011. Her PhD studies brought her to the Johannes Kepler University Linz (Austria) where she recently completed her PhD on the synthesis of polyphosphazenes with controlled dimensions and unique architectures and their application as nanomedicines under the guidance of Ian Teasdale. She is currently working as a Postdoc at the Johannes Kepler University on polyphosphazenes for medical applications such as tissue engineering.


Poly(organo)phosphazenes, inorganic/organic hybrid polymers with a backbone of alternating phosphorus and nitrogen atoms, offer unique and highly tunable characteristics due to the vast range of applicable organic... [ view full abstract ]
