Scott M. Grayson complete his PhD in Chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley under Jean M. J. Fréchet and carried out his post-doctoral studies in the laboratories of C. Grant Willson at the University of Texas. He was appointed as a professor at the Department of Chemistry at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA in 2005. He now holds the Joseph H. Boyer Professorship of Chemistry at Tulane where he explores the synthesis and applications of well-defined, yet complex macromolecular structures. His research group has recently focused on the synthesis of amphiphilic and cyclic polymers for applications including transdermal drug delivery and gene therapies, but also focuses on new techniques for polymer characterization. He was the 2018-2019 Fulbright Fellow to the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm investigating monodisperse polymers as mass spectrometry calibrants.
