Welcome to the Ulijn Group website. We develop molecular materials and systems using simple biological building blocks with unique properties, such as adaptability, transient responsiveness and molecular recognition. These properties open up new applications in wide ranging areas ranging from biomedicine to nanotechnology. [Group Members and Full Biography]
Ulijn Group at ASRC
The Strathclyde and New York sections of the Ulijn Group enjoyed an fun and action packed week in New York with our annual large group meeting followed by the Active & Adaptive Materials conference at ASRC.

In this paper, we describe a new way to create emulsions with tunable properties, based on very simple biological molecules, as published in the journal Advanced Materials. In collaboration with Tell Tuttle's lab, we used a combination of experiments and simulations to show that dramatically variable oil-in-water emulsions may be produced from tripeptides.
