Biomimetic Soft Matter and DNA Nanotechnology
Hi there! We are a group of science enthusiast trying to learn something about the fascinating physics, chemistry, and (occasionally) biology of complex nanoscale systems.
We investigate problems of fundamental relevance as well as develop new technologies and, to do so, we often make use of the tools of DNA nanotechnology.
We like to adopt a multidisciplinary approach, that combines experimental methods, theoretical modelling, and computer simulations
We have a number of active research lines: from the development of new DNA-based building blocks for the self-assembly of functional materials, to the study of biomimetic artificial tissues to the development of tools for Synthetic Biology. Learn more about our latest research updates!
We really are a mixed bunch! We host students and researchers with very diverse background: Physicists, Chemists, Nanotechnologists, Engineers, Biologists. Find out more about us, and bear in mind that we are always looking for enthusiastic students and post-doctoral researchers to join the group!
