Expertise and Interests: 

Kate Schilke’s group develops engineered polymer/protein nanocoatings to impart bioactivity and biocompatibility at a variety of material surfaces. We use surface-initiated polymerization and genetic code expansion to immobilize desired proteins at otherwise non-fouling interfaces, thus avoiding costly upstream purification steps. Applications include removal of pathogens from blood, biomedical devices and biosensors, and biocatalysis.
