Teaching activities:
At the professional level Dr. Bronich lectures in Applied Biochemistry course where she utilizes her expertise in the area of gene therapy. At the graduate level Dr. Bronich is a co-coordinator and lecturer for the Polymer Therapeutics course. In addition, Dr. Bronich lectures on light scattering techniques in Quantitative Pharmaceutical Analysis course and coordinates the Physical Section of Current Topics in Pharmaceutical Sciences.
Research Activities/Interests:
Dr. Bronich's research interests are in the area of self-assembling polymer materials and applications of these materials in medicine. Of special interest is the design and study of novel types of functional materials based on complexes formed between block ionomers and oppositely charged polymers and low molecular weight amphiphilic molecules. These systems are of great fundamental importance as models of biological systems formed as a result of self-assembly processes. In addition, her recent work has expanded to include the application of these amphiphilic block copolymers and block ionomer complexes in drug delivery to treat cancer and the development of the polycation-DNA complexes for gene delivery.
