 Dr. Majad Khan

Education​​
  • 2000-2004 PhD in synthetic polymer chemistry and surface initiated polymerizations for delivery of small molecules, under the supervision of Prof. Wilhelm Huck at the Melville Laboratory for Polymer Synthesis at Cambridge University, UK. Throughout my PhD studies I worked on various synthetic polymer methodologies such as: Free radical, Ring-opening polymerization and ATRP polymerization. Thesis Title: New Routes to Hyperbranched Macromolecules
  • 1996-2000 MSci in Chemistry at Imperial College London (2.1 Class)
