About

Leon Capelôa studied biomedical chemistry at the JGU Mainz where he graduated in 2018 (M.Sc.). His PhD project, as a follow-up of his master’s thesis, is focused on the development of polypept(o)ide-based materials to be utilized as delivery systems for therapeutic siRNA. Therefore, his research covers the synthesis and evaluation of new polymeric structures and architectures to complex, stabilize and shield siRNA to enable systemic application.
