Biomimetic Soft Matter and DNA Nanotechnology




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! 


Have a look at our most recent published works and access journal links, full text, datasets, experimental protocols and shared software.
