Professor Ramaz katsarava

R. Katsarava is a full Professor and Director of the Institute of Chemistry & Molecular Engineering of Agricultural University of Georgia.

Ramaz is the founder of several new polycondensation methods of polymer synthesis that have been developing since 70s of the last century. He and his team pioneered the synthesis of several new families of highly biocompatible and biodegradable non-conventional polymers composed of naturally occurring a-amino acids and other nontoxic building blocks like fatty dicarboxylic acids and diols. These polymers show a widest range of mechanical, physical-chemical and biochemical properties, and have a high potential for numerous biomedical applications. Some of them are being applied in medico-pharmaceutical industry in the USA, Netherlands and Georgia. Ramaz is the Word recognized expert in the field of biomedical polymers, a member of several National and International professional organizations. He has more than 350 publications including papers in leading International journal, possesses various Georgian, US, Japanese and Australian patents, more than 40 grants from National and International Science Foundations. In 2007 Ramaz was awarded the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Gold Medal as an Outstanding Inventor.
