Hokie TracksTM represent dendritic amphiphiles that the Gandour Group synthesizes to create structure–function probes to solve challenges in chemical biology and surface science. Two main objectives— (1) Design and synthesis of affordable anti-infectives and (2) Modification of metal oxide surfaces in designing bionano-constructs and responsive thin films—comprise our current projects.
